How to remove columns from a bar chart which have no data


(Ken Ivon) #1

Continuing the discussion from Absence of some X.AXIS values in Bar chart or line chart:

I have the same basic question. I am also new fairly new to Kibana. I am using version 4.4.2.

My configuration is :
y-axis sum of technique_count
x-axis Terms aggregation on ne_type.raw order by y-axis metric
split chart on columns, Terms aggregation on ne_ip.raw order by y-axis metric
split bars Terms aggregation on technique.raw order by y-axis metric

This gives me basically what I want, which is IP address by NE_TYPE by discovery technique. However, the way I have it configured, Kibana is doing a cartesian product of ne_ip and ne_type, so If I have 1000 ne_ip addresses and 20 ne_types, i am getting 20 columns per IP address. In the actual data, one IP address will not be related to more than 2 ne_types, so in such an instance I get 20 columns for one IP address, but only 1 or 2 of those columns will actually have counts greater than zero and the other 18 will have zero counts. This means most of the columns that will fit on a viewable graph will be meaningless so I would like to remove those zero count columns from the visualization.

Hi Ken,

Are you mostly trying to get the data table? Or the chart?

I'm trying to test a similar scenario with my test data but I don't think it's similar enough. Can you post a screenshot?

Thanks,
Lee

Hopefully that is readable.

Here is a sample data set if that helps (the IPs have been changed to protect the innocent). The real data set is 41,000+ lines.

The lines above for the 1.99.254.99 IP is all the data in the file for the first IP shown in the screen shot. It has only MME and eNodeB ne_type records associated with it, but in the screen shot you can see columns for all 6 different ne_types that are found in the data set. I haven't tried the above data set myself yet, but I am assuming the issue is not a data size issue. I included some records for each of the 6 ne_types found in the real data set. Hopefully it will reproduce the issue.

In response to your question, I am mostly trying to get the bar chart to not show the ip/ne combinations that have no data associated with them.

Also, in case it matters, the IP addresses are stored in elasticsearch as strings, not IP addresses. All the values are strings except for technique_count, which is an integer.


(Ken Ivon) #5

Here is the screen shot using the test data set I provided.

For the first IP shown, there is only data for the first 2 ne_types, so I would like to remove the additional 4 ne_type columns so that I can display more of the relevant data. I would want to do the same for any ne_type columns that have no corresponding records in the data set.

Hi Ken,
I'm still trying to help you on this. I have your sample data loaded but haven't found a solution yet and I'm at a conference a few days this week.

Regards,
Lee

Hi Lee,
Have you had a chance to research this any further?

Thanks,
Ken


(Lee Drengenberg) #8

Hi Ken,
I spent some more time on it but didn't find a solution. I'll ask around and see if I can find some help.

Regards,
Lee

Hi Ken,
Someone else suggested going to the Advanced link in your aggregation and add {"min_doc_count" : 1}. Can you give that a try?

Thanks,
Lee


(Ken Ivon) #10

I added {"min_doc_count" : 1} to the JSON input section for the x-axis bucket, but it made no difference. I then added it to Split Chart and tried again, and then to Split Bars, but I see no change in my visualization at any point.

Thanks,
Ken
