State Timeline Panel repeats last value

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?

Grafana v.9.4.7 on CentOS

  • What are you trying to achieve?

I’m using Grafana’s State Timeline panel, I have a database with process progress, in which each register has a progress (0.0-100.0) a name and a Timestamp.

When a progress ends registers from that progress aren’t created any longer.

Issue: Grafana extends to infinite the last progress value, values after 98.8, 98.1, 94.9, 97.4, 98.7 exist on my database only on one timestamp but Grafana keep them till “now”. I want bars to end when there are no more registers from that process.

Is this the intended behavior of this panel type?

Anything I can do?

I would appreciate maybe suggestions of other ways of representing this sort of data since I’m new to Grafana.

Rigth now I feel like these stacked bars fit pretty well what I’m trying to achieve but I don’t like they repeat the last value cause it doesn’t make sense in the context.

that infinite progress value is by design in older versions of grafana I think. try it in new version of grafana.

also the time line is doing what it is designed to do if there you do not tell it something has ended it thinks it is infinite
