Data discrepancy issue between Grafana and cloudwatch(datasource)

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
    Grafana v11.0.0

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    I’m trying to replicate a cloud watch dashboard on Grafana and I’m facing data discrepancy in the Grafana dashboard for percentile errors(P95)metric panel.

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    I’m trying to replicate this P95 dashboard by integrating cloud watch as data source and visualize it in Grafana. Unfortunately am getting a different data for the P95 errors time-series graph.

  • What happened? The data in AWS Cloud watch and Grafana doesn’t match for P95 time-series graph.

  • What did you expect to happen? I would like to know if Grafana has any special functionalities or if someone could suggest a fix to define the time-period so that the data in Cloud watch matches the same in Grafana.
