Gauge with color gradient like heatmap?

Hi all,
I’m trying to create a server load distribution grid as ganglia has. See attached screen shot. It is a grid with each server’s load display as a color gradient. Hotter colors for higher loads. Also, pointing to a square displays the server name and the load as text.
I think what I want is a gauge for each server, but as far as I can see gauges don’t have a color gradient output option.
Can it be done in grafana (with prometheus datasource)? Thanks!

Hi @cwseys ,

Have you ever checked out the polystat panel plugin for Grafana? It sounds like it might have a lot of the functionalities that you want.

It’s a popular and powerful plugin. Def worth checking out if you haven’t yet :+1:

Excellent! Just what I was looking for!
