To display a time series in Grafana, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Grafana dashboard.
  2. Click on "Create" in the left navigation pane and select "Dashboard."
  3. On the dashboard, click on "Add panel" and select the visualization type you want to use for your time series (e.g., Graph).
  4. In the panel configuration, select the data source you want to use for your time series (e.g., Prometheus, InfluxDB).
  5. Configure the time range and resolution for your time series by selecting the appropriate options in the panel configuration.
  6. Specify the query to retrieve the time series data. Depending on your data source, you may need to use specific query languages (e.g., Prometheus PromQL, InfluxDB Flux).
  7. Customize the visualization settings, such as the axes labels, legend, colors, and time format.
  8. Save the panel configuration and view the time series graph on your dashboard. You can add more panels or customize the layout as needed.


Remember to set up your data source connection in Grafana beforehand, as it is required to retrieve the time series data. Additionally, the steps may vary slightly depending on your Grafana version and data source.

  1. Log in to your Grafana dashboard.
  2. Click on the "+" icon on the left sidebar and select "Dashboard" to create a new dashboard or select an existing one.
  3. Click on the "Add panel" button on the dashboard.
  4. In the panel editor, click on the "Panel Title" and then on "Edit."
  5. In the Visualization tab, select the type of visualization you want to use for your time series data (e.g., Graph, Singlestat, Table).
  6. In the Query tab, select the data source from the dropdown menu (e.g., Prometheus, InfluxDB).
  7. Write the query to retrieve the time series data. Depending on the data source, you may need to use the query language specific to that data source (e.g., PromQL for Prometheus, InfluxQL for InfluxDB).
  8. Configure additional settings such as time range, interval, and any other visualization-specific settings.
  9. Click on the "Apply" button to apply the changes to the panel.
  10. Click on the "Save" icon on the top menu bar to save the dashboard with the time series panel.
  11. You can now view the time series data on the Grafana dashboard. You can further customize the dashboard layout, add additional panels, and set up alerts based on the time series data.


By following these steps, you can easily display a time series in Grafana using the appropriate visualization and data source configurations.
