Floating Bubble Charts

Floating bubble charts are based on two metrics and two attributes. Floating bubble charts are supported by all Zoomdata data connectors except Cloudera Search. They are supported by Zoomdata Apache Solr connectors for version 5.2 or later.

The default settings used for floating bubble charts vary, based on the data source selected for the chart.

To configure the default floating bubble chart settings for a data source configuration:

  1. Edit the appropriate data source configuration. See Editing a Data Source Configuration.

  2. Select the Charts tab in the data source configuration wizard.

  3. On the Standard subtab of the Charts tab, select Floating Bubbles.

    If you want to be able to display the data collected by this data source configuration as a floating bubble chart, make sure the Floating Bubbles checkbox is selected.

    Default floating bubble chart settings appear on the right side of the page.

  4. Configure the default settings as follows:

    Setting Description
    Group 1

    Select the attribute by which Group 1 data should be grouped.

    If you select a date or time attribute, a second box appears to the right for this setting. Use this second box to specify the date and time granularity used to group the data. Valid granularities are Millisecond, Second, Minute, Hour, Day, Week, Month or Year.

    If some of these granularity options do not appear, verify that the granularity specified for this field on the Fields tab is set at the correct granularity level. For each field, the available granularity options include all options starting from Year down to the granularity level specified for this field on the Fields tab.

    The refinement level of the field data in a data store defines the minimum level of granularity that should be set for the field. Specifying granularity for a field that is lower than the refinement level of the field data will not produce a chart with data grouped at the requested lower level. For example, if a field's data is stored in hours, requesting the granularity of that data lower than hours will produce the values up to the hour level, and the more detailed level information will be zeros (i.e., 0 minutes, 0 seconds, and 0 milliseconds).
    Group 1 Limit Specify the number of Group 1 attribute items to display on the chart.
    Group 1 Color Palette Define the color settings for the Group 1 attribute. Select the Display Legend checkbox to view the legend on the chart.
    Group 1 Sort Select a Group 1 metric or attribute by which the Group 1 attribute items should be sorted. You can also select the sorting order (ascending or descending). For metrics, you can define the default aggregation function: SUM, AVG, MAX, or MIN. See Available Metric Functions.
    Group 2

    Select the attribute by which Group 2 data should be grouped.

    If you select a date or time attribute, a second box appears to the right for this setting. Use this second box to specify the date and time granularity used to group the data. Valid granularities are Millisecond, Second, Minute, Hour, Day, Week, Month or Year.

    If some of these granularity options do not appear, verify that the granularity specified for this field on the Fields tab is set at the correct granularity level. For each field, the available granularity options include all options starting from Year down to the granularity level specified for this field on the Fields tab.

    The refinement level of the field data in a data store defines the minimum level of granularity that should be set for the field. Specifying granularity for a field that is lower than the refinement level of the field data will not produce a chart with data grouped at the requested lower level. For example, if a field's data is stored in hours, requesting the granularity of that data lower than hours will produce the values up to the hour level, and the more detailed level information will be zeros (i.e., 0 minutes, 0 seconds, and 0 milliseconds).
    Group 2 Limit Specify the number of Group 2 attribute items to display on the chart.
    Group 2 Sort Select a Group 2 metric or attribute by which the Group 2 attribute items should be sorted. You can also select the sorting order (ascending or descending). For metrics, you can define the default aggregation function: SUM, AVG, MAX, or MIN. See Available Metric Functions.
    Y Axis Select the metric for the y-axis. You can also define the default aggregation function used for the metric values: SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, or (for some data sources) LAST VALUE. See Available Metric Functions.
    Size Select the metric that affects the size of the bubbles in the chart. You can also define the default aggregation function used for the metric values: SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, or (for some data sources) LAST VALUE. See Available Metric Functions.
