Events with start and end date


I'm analyzing a series of events that have a start time and an end time. I would like to plot an area chart with time on the x axis and on the y axis the number of events that are ongoing at that moment (start < x < end). Is this possible at the moment?

The result would be something similar to de date histograms only we count how many times x lies between two values instead of counting how many times a value lies in an interval.

Help would be greatly appriciated

It is possible, but the solution is a bit complex. It is posted in this thread: Display concurrency in data on Kibana

Thank you for the link! It seems to be the way to go. I ran into an issue with this solution. I posted it in the linked thread since it seemed better suited there.
