Visualizations and graphs
Honeycomb has several types of graphs, to explore your query results in multiple
ways. Most are found in the Graph Settings menu:
You can toggle the following options in the Graph Settings menu:
Line Graphs or Stacked Graphs
- A Line Graph displays each Break Down group as a line
of values over time. You can read the value at a particular
time directly from the Y axis on the left side of the graph.
- A Stacked Graph displays groups as stacked
colored areas under their line graphs. Each shows a group's relative
contribution to the total. The Y axis reflects the sum of all groups.
Linear Scale or Log Scale
- The Y axis of a Linear Scale graph increases by a fixed
amount as values increase. It is useful for data with a limited range of
- The Y axis of a Log Scale graph increases exponentially.
Each Y value increase represents an order of magnitude (10n) change.
A Log Scale graph is useful for data with an extremely large range of
UTC Time or Local Time X-Axis
- UTC Time displays the X axis in
Universal Time, the time at 0° longitude. UTC is sometimes referred to
as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT.) UTC does not observe Daylight Savings Time.
- Local Time displays the X axis in your browser's local time.
Omit Missing Values or
Fill Missing Values in with Zeros
- Omit Missing Values interpolates between points when the
intervening time buckets have no matching events.
- Fill Missing Values in with Zeros substitutes zero values
for time buckets with no matching events.
Heatmaps show the statistical distribution of the values in a dataset column over time.
Unlike the options on the Graph Settings menu, heatmaps require a specific type of query.
To generate a heatmap, add a
HEATMAP term to your Calculate clause. For more detail,
see the Heatmaps page.
