We have internal app that helped us look at metrics in realtime. Some of the metrics like moving average and week over week are pretty helpful. I was looking for support of such metrics on grafana but couldn’t find them. I did read up on grafana’s idea on relying on the backend DB to do it. In case of elastic search it does provide moving average. But I am unable to understand as to why that restriction. The way we look at , it is a function of data representation and not the data itself. So fitting it around the frontend made more sense.
Looker is a similar frontend for analytics and it supports it in a very nice fashion https://docs.looker.com/exploring-data/using-table-calculations. Is there any specific reason not to support it on frontend ?
Is there some place I can start with “computed metrics” ? and probably contribute back to community with these two functionalities ?
