How to distinguish between these instance ids on we have two instance ids but on the graph both have same name cpu utilisation so how to distinguish between them?


Hi, if you hover over the Info icon in the Alias field you’ll get the following description:

Alias replacement variables:

  • {{metric}}
  • {{stat}}
  • {{namespace}}
  • {{region}}
  • {{period}}

So I guess you should be able to input something there to distinguish between instances, like {{InstanceId}} maybe?

If you have a few instance, you can type in ALIAS BY.
If you have many instance, you should Add tag(host) in GROUP BY.

The question is about cloudwatch - NOT influxdb

okaay. Thanks got it.
