Graph Settings | Honeycomb

Graph Settings

Honeycomb has several types of graphs, to explore your query results in multiple ways. Use the Graph Settings menu to customize your query results display, control markers, or to download the results.

Query Display Options 

These menu options control the appearance of the query results. Select an option to apply it to the current query results. The selected option in the menu then updates to display the opposite of that option. For example, Display Line Graphs becomes Display Stacked Graphs.

Display Stacked Graphs or Line Graphs 

Line Graph
[default] Displays each group as a line of values over time. Read the value at a particular time directly from the Y axis on the left side of the graph.
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.

Display Log Scale or Linear Scale 

Log Scale
[default] 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 values.
Linear 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 expected values.

Display UTC Time X-Axis or Localtime X-Axis 

UTC Time
Displays the X axis in Coordinated 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 with Zeros 

Omit Missing Values
[default] Interpolates between points when the intervening time buckets have no matching events. Use to display a continuous line graph with no drops to zero.
Fill Missing Values in with Zeros
Substitutes zero values for time buckets with no matching events.

Marker Display Options 

Control how Markers display on the query results, either by filtering or changing the markers' appearance.

Filter Markers 

Access the Filter Markers modal either by using the Graph Settings menu or the l keyboard shortcut. This option label remains static in the menu.

Then, the Filter Markers modal appears with the option to Filter by value with a search box to enter terms, or Filter by type with a list of facets to select. Select Submit to update the display of markers.

Hide or Show Markers 

Hide or show markers in the results display either by using the Graph Settings menu or the m keyboard shortcut.

Graph Hovers 

Graph Hovers appear in the results display when hovering over a graph. Hide or show Graph Hovers either by using the Graph Settings menu or the w keyboard shortcut. For example, use this setting to remove any obstruction to the overall graph display, or to optimize for screenshot purposes.

Download Options 

These options remain static in the menu.

Download CSV 

Use Download CSV to download the query results in .csv format.

Download JSON 

Use Download JSON to download the query results in JSON format.
