Table visualization

The Table option displays the results of queries in a tabular view, which is sometimes easier to analyze than graph views of data.

Table example

Select the Table option from the visualization dropdown in the upper right.

Table behavior

The table visualization renders queried data in structured, easy-to-read tables. Columns and rows match those in the query output. If query results contain multiple tables, only one table is shown at a time. Select other output tables in the far left column of the table visualization. Tables are identified by their group key.

Table Controls

To view Table controls, click the settings icon ( ) next to the visualization dropdown in the upper right.

Table examples

Tables are helpful when displaying many human-readable metrics in a dashboard such as cluster statistics or log messages.

Human-readable cluster metrics

The following example queries the latest reported memory usage from a cluster of servers.

Query the latest memory usage from each host
from(bucket: "example-bucket")
  |> range(start: v.timeRangeStart, stop: v.timeRangeStop)
  |> filter(fn: (r) =>
      r._measurement == "mem" and
      r._field == "used_percent"
  )
  |> group(columns: ["host"])
  |> last()
  |> group()
  |> keep(columns: ["_value", "host"])
