Using downsampling hyperfunctions in Grafana to fix slow performance

There is no doubt that Grafana is a powerful tool for creating useful graphs, but what do you do when you have too much data? With a large amount of data comes two common visualization problems of slow dashboards and noisy data.

Downsampling hyperfunctions were created to fix exactly that:

  • :bar_chart: asap_smooth creates readable graphs that preserve the rough shape and larger trends of the input data, while minimizing the local variance between points.
  • :eyes: lttb aims to retain visual similarity between the downsampled data and the original dataset.
