This topic describes how to view query results in a bubble chart.

Background information

A bubble chart consists of the following elements:
  • X axis
  • Y-axis
  • Bubbles

  2. In the Projects section, click the name of the project that you want to manage.

To analyze data exceptions based on bubble sizes, execute the following query statement:
* | select date_format(from_unixtime(__time__ - __time__% 60), '%H:%i') as minute, case 
when request_method = 'GET' and COUNT(1) > 9000 then 3 when request_method = 'GET' and COUNT(1) > 8500 then 2 when request_method = 'GET' and COUNT(1) > 8000 then 1 
when request_method = 'POST' and COUNT(1) > 3000 then 3
when request_method = 'DELETE' and COUNT(1) > 1500 then 3
else 0 end as level,  request_method group by minute, request_method order by minute asc limit 1000
