Using timelion it is possible to create a cumulative graph with dates on the X-axis.
Is there a way to create a cumulative graph (with or without timelion) using a histogram on the X-axis? I tried feeding timelion my histogram data to the timeline argument, i.e. .es(timeline=my_data_series), but it (expectedly) choked.
Please correct me if I am misinterpreting your question, but this can easily be done in Kibana without Timelion.
I don't think your graph is cumulative (if it was it would never go down).
Also, on the X-axis I want to use a field that is not a time series. I.e. a regular histogram, not a date histogram.
Did you find any solution?
Have you considered a custom visualization?
I don't know what you mean by that. Do you have an example?
