Calculations in KIBANA


(Patrick Proniewski) #1

Hello,

I understand that Kibana is not ES, but they are closely related, so I give my question a try here: I would like to be able to process numbers after query.
For example, I'm using the stats panel to get the total amount of time spent by Apache to serve GET requests. Duration of a request is given and stored in microseconds. When I use the Kibana dashboard it returns a result in microseconds, say for example 61,745,418,708 µs. Numbers like this should be humanly readable (17 hours and 9 minutes), otherwise the dashboard is useless.
Conversion from microseconds to hours inside ES storage is not an option. When I deal with a very short time period, hours or minutes don't mean anything. The conversion for readability must take place when Kibana gets results from ES.

Any idea?

regards,
Patrick
