Metricedit
A metric visualization displays a single number for each aggregation you select:
Metric Aggregations:
- Count
- The count aggregation returns a raw count of the elements in the selected index pattern.
- Average
- This aggregation returns the average of a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
- Sum
- The sum aggregation returns the total sum of a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
- Min
- The min aggregation returns the minimum value of a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
- Max
- The max aggregation returns the maximum value of a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
- Unique Count
- The cardinality aggregation returns the number of unique values in a field. Select a field from the drop-down.
- Standard Deviation
- The extended stats aggregation returns the standard deviation of data in a numeric field. Select a field from the drop-down.
- Top Hit
- The top hits aggregation returns one or more of the top values from a specific field in your documents. Select a field from the drop-down, how you want to sort the documents and choose the top fields, and how many values should be returned.
- Percentiles
- The percentile aggregation divides the values in a numeric field into percentile bands that you specify. Select a field from the drop-down, then specify one or more ranges in the Percentiles fields. Click the X to remove a percentile field. Click + Add to add a percentile field.
- Percentile Rank
- The percentile ranks aggregation returns the percentile rankings for the values in the numeric field you specify. Select a numeric field from the drop-down, then specify one or more percentile rank values in the Values fields. Click the X to remove a values field. Click +Add to add a values field.
Parent Pipeline Aggregations:
For each of the parent pipeline aggregations you have to define the metric for which the aggregation is calculated. That could be one of your existing metrics or a new one. You can also nest this aggregations (for example to produce 3rd derivative)
- Derivative
- The derivative aggregation calculates the derivative of specific metrics.
- Cumulative Sum
- The cumulative sum aggregation calculates the cumulative sum of a specified metric in a parent histogram
- Moving Average
- The moving average aggregation will slide a window across the data and emit the average value of that window
- Serial Diff
- The serial differencing is a technique where values in a time series are subtracted from itself at different time lags or period
Sibling Pipeline Aggregations:
Just like with parent pipeline aggregations you need to provide a metric for which to calculate the sibling aggregation. On top of that you also need to provide a bucket aggregation which will define the buckets on which the sibling aggregation will run
- Average Bucket
- The avg bucket calculates the (mean) average value of a specified metric in a sibling aggregation
- Sum Bucket
- The sum bucket calculates the sum of values of a specified metric in a sibling aggregation
- Min Bucket
- The min bucket calculates the minimum value of a specified metric in a sibling aggregation
- Max Bucket
- The max bucket calculates the maximum value of a specified metric in a sibling aggregation
You can add an aggregation by clicking the + Add Metrics button.
Enter a string in the Custom Label field to change the display label.
You can click the Advanced link to display more customization options:
- JSON Input
- A text field where you can add specific JSON-formatted properties to merge with the aggregation definition, as in the following example:
{ "script" : "doc['grade'].value * 1.2" }
In Elasticsearch releases 1.4.3 and later, this functionality requires you to enable dynamic Groovy scripting.
The availability of these options varies depending on the aggregation you choose.
