In response to those threads:
I wanted to make a review of what’s currently possible according to my experience with Grafana.
I’m using InfluxDB with Grafana.
In case you’re wondering what is the $_date, I’ve made a tutorial on how to make a semi-relative time range for Grafana, it can be found here:
As you can see, the graph behaves such as when you pick a time range in the top right corner of “Quick ranges”, only the graph with no timeshift (Override relative time under the “Time range” option) changes. So, using my semi-relative time range or the built in timeshift is a solution to have multiple time ranges.
But as you also can see, when you pick a timerange by selecting a range of a graph, every graph panel is updated, this is the limitation I (and others) have found.
Furthermore, only the graph panel behaves like this. You can see that the pie chart doesn’t move even when you pick a tick by clicking on the graph. That is good news! I also tried it with the table panel, and it works like a charm!
I know this feature has been requested since 2014 and is very difficult to implement, so be patient !
