First post, so be gentle!
I’ve sending a set of metrics to the metrics endpoint of Grafana cloud. However, I’ve seeing some really weird behaviour when trying to sum or total this metric. The metric itself is simple a count of an updates every minute (so it can vary 10, 0, 3, etc.)
However, when I try to use the “Total” figure in the Stat visualization - I am getting really weird behaviour!
When I “edit” the panel, the total is wrong (for the last 24 hours, as per time range)
- It displays 12.4k
- Setting of metric:
But then, if I click the “refresh” icon, it is correct:
- It displays 62.1k
If I save and go back to the dashboard, it is correct until I refresh with the 24 hour time range specified, it is wrong again:
- Back to 12.4k
If I “view” the panel and click refresh, it is correct!
- Back to 62.1k
Bizarre…I don’t know if I am sending metrics in the wrong format or I’ve configured the panel wrong!
