Hello, I’m very new to Grafana and Prometheus.
I’m using Grafana v8.2.6 on Windows 10, along with Prometheus.
It scrapes a Gauge metric that is sent every 2 minutes.
I would like to display a stat that corresponds to a running sum of all values the Gauge ever had. To be a little more specific, the stat should be a sum of all seen values when clicking on
Inspect and then
In this case, a Counter would be more suitable, however I would like to reset it everyday, but it is not possible with a Counter. That’s why the Gauge metric was chosen.
I tried adding the
increase() operation, but since the metric is a gauge it had unexpected behavior (displayed 0 even if there was data).
I also tried the
sum() function, which displayed the same value as the gauge:
I tried the
Total calculation types in the Transform section, but it was displaying the same value as the Gauge.
Is there a way to achieve this?
