Mathematical Operations


(David Tito Jordy Ruiz Sotelo) #1

Hi everybody. I´ve been working on Kibana for 5 months and it's a great tool for designing dashboard. Now, I don't if it's possible, but I want to work with diferent variables in mathematical operations, I've read that this isn't implemented on Kibana, yet, and others says that there is a workaround, so I'm not sure and I would like to know if any of you have tried this. Hope you can clear my doubts and help me.

@BERUSO have you tried using the Scripted Fields in Kibana? You can use these to do some calculations on the fly: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/scripted-fields.html

If you're analyzing time-series data, Timelion also offers some additional mathematical operations: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/timelion.html

I've tried Scripted Fields to calculate one variable, but what about calculating 2 different variables and then use mathematical operation between those ones and show a trend graph of the 3 calculations. Is it possible?

@BERUSO unfortunately you can't reference Scripted Fields from other Scripted Fields, but you could potentially duplicate the scripted field logic.
