Dashboard providing inconsistent real-time data

What happened: We have grafana setup for a client of ours and when I open a dashboard and try to get information that its querying, it doesn’t load up that information for me. But when I go to a time frame that we know there was a recent event going on and we should see some data nothing shows up. But going back past a month or so its able to retrieve it if that makes sense. Also for the particular panes that Im looking at the queries are correct because it works for another client of ours.

What you expected to happen: In theory it suppose to show us data of different systems we are querying via snmp at which ever time frame we choose.

How to reproduce it (as minimally and precisely as possible): In regards, to this I don’t know.

Anything else we need to know?:

Hi @rtokko809 and welcome to the Grafana forum.

Questions:

  1. Is this a standard time series graph like this?
  2. You state that

it doesn’t load up that information for me. But when I go to a time frame that we know there was a recent event going on and we should see some data nothing shows up.

For a time interval that does work, can you click on Table view and see data?
For a time interval that does NOT work, can you click on Table view and see data?

  1. It would appear you are using an old version of Influx and likely InfluxQL. At what time interval are you recording the data (once a second? twice a minute? 15 times per hour?, etc.)

Hi grant,
so for a time frame that does work I do have data.

But for the time frame specified as of last 7 days or sooner no data shows up but I do get the information as of Last Highest Count and The max count for that time period. So I see data for the counts but not being processed on the graph.

For this particular panel its every 5 min its pulling the info.

@rtokko809

What happens if you change the time(1m) to time(5m)?

So I changed it to Group By Time(5 min) and then the pulling interval changed to 30 min. Is that suppose to happen? Also no data showed up on the graph. It looks like from 30 days and above data shows but once I hit 7 days and more current nothing shows.

If you inspect your data outside of Grafana, is there a new data point every second? every minute? every 5 minutes?

How can I find that information?

Maybe this might answer your question. This is a snippit from a telegraf.conf file we have associate to this grafana setup.
