  1. I am on Grafana v7.0.4
  2. I am using Prometheus as the back-end data storage
  3. Here is what I have so far, but I want to see the top 5 for the last 7 days, not just the top 5 overall, hence the increase function.

  4. The data is stored as a counter. Please let me know if there is anything else you would need. Thanks

Is there any update on this topic. I would also like to sum up over the increase(). The underlying data is the uptime of a pc.
