How to visualize activity at a point in time, for time series data


(Gerard Gleeson) #1

I'm looking at log data for jobs executing for a number of clients, on a number of job queues, and ultimately servers. Each log entry includes start time and end time. Is there any way to visualize the jobs that are running at a given instant?

I can plot various attributes by start time (e.g. sum/average/max duration, etc.), but it would be very useful to be able to visualize what was executing at a particular time. And to break that down by client, queue, machine.

Thanks,

I'm not 100% sure this will work in Kibana, but have you tried indexing the start/end times as a date_range type field? https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/range.html

Thanks Spencer, that seems like it might be a promising approach. If I can find a visualization that makes sense.
