A second Y axis would be a great feature

Asked by Gabe Harriman on 2010-10-15

The question has already been asked/answered, but I think the feature would still be extremely valuable.

The ability to add a second Y-axis with it's own scale (auto-scale or manual) would be awesome! Sure, you can scale the actual data with a function, but I don't think that's as effective for non-tech (business) type users.

I agree Gabe, I get asked about this every so often. I'm sure we'll get around to it one day, just haven't had time lately.

Honestly one of the things I'm most anxious to do with Graphite on the graphing side of things is to implement interactive client-side rendering with canvas or svg. There are already a lot of cool open source libraries out there in the works (many that already have this feature), we just need to find a robust one with a compatible license and build a graphing widget with it that integrates with Graphite data.

+1 for this feature. It's invaluable for correlating disparate data. I used it all the time with Reconnoiter.

Count me in on encouraging this feature, along with non-linear Y-axis scale this makes graphed data FAR FAR more useful in many cases.

i created this some time ago:
https://code.launchpad.net/~lucio.torre/graphite/add-flot

Adds a new interface for rendering graphs with the following features:
- rendering is done client side
- you can mouse-over data points to see their value and to which series they belong
- you can zoom into portions of the data
- you have an overview of the plot
- you can move the series between any of the two axis
- autocomplete for metric input
- faster manipulation of graph series

I would love some reviews and opinions about how to get this into graphite.
(it has been proposed for review for some months now)

I was having some issues getting this to work. Let me try and install it again, and give you some feedback.

Sorry for the long delay in checking out your branch Lucio, I'll try to take it for a spin this week.

Lucio Torre (lucio.torre) said : #7

Hi Chris,

Any luck with the branch? i use it daily and find it very useful. I am pretty sure you have changes in mind to make it more "graphite friendly" and i would happily make those changes.

Lucio.

Can you help with this problem?
