Hi all, I’m new to the community.
I want to know how Grafana decides on a query step given a time range. E.g. I choose ‘Last 7 days’ on the time filter and not specify a query step, yet - as I saw next to the Query Options - Grafana has a preconfigured or dynamically adjusted query step based on my specified filter. It shows me
MD = 400 Interval = 30m from the get-go and the
Interval shrinks to 2 seconds as I keep zooming in. I assumed the first 30m and 2 seconds to be the query step in those instances.
In the docs, it says that
The part about deciding the Interval based on how wide the graph is confused me. If we are deciding the
Interval based on graph width, then does that mean my graph width dictates how many data points I want to show? I’m confused about
Interval’s relationship with query step. Do they affect each other?
Please correct me if I have any misunderstandings.
