Do not show duplicate legend value

I use graphite as datasource.
Using timeseries in X-axis.
Trying to plot metrics and using alias.

  1. one problem is that there is no line connecting the different points plotted Getting line connected points over a series , for which i understand that each point is a series and cannot be connected.
  2. As a workaround, i’m planning to show the different node criteria as different graphs.

Now, if i plot the same graph using influxDB, then i will get the series connected and legend value showed for tags.
Whereas, if i use graphite, then even on using alias, i get a legend displayed for every point. This becomes a problem when i try to plot more than one node selection on the same graph.

What is the solution to get only unique legend value displayed? If there is a way to achieve it, then i can use same color for the legend and differentiate the points.


It would help a lot if you could provide a screenshot of your query and the raw graphite json response? (use the query inspector or open chrome dev tool network tab).
