This is actually very cool, thanks Rod!

One very quick question as I get myself familiar with the tool...how can we fiddle with y-axis ranges? For example, if I want to force the graph to start at 0 how would I go about that? Does the Range function [0:] exist like in the default TSD?

Thanks!

I actually mis-spoke.  The graphing library does give you the ability to fix the y-range but has not been incorporated into this release.  This will be incorporated into future release/s.

This is really cool. I deployed this at Arista and hacked the code a
little bit to work with our existing super old Django 1.3.1 setup, and
once I got it working I was able to re-create my little MySQL
replication lag dashboard in a couple minutes.

Thanks for sharing!

The only thing is that the plotting library is not free. Is it possible to move to for example dc.js ?

It should be possible and its probably worth investigating some other libraries. You'll notice that the charts do a full redraw when they append data. We ran into a few problems dealing with adding datapoints to highcharts series so the appending and redraw looks a little rough.

not sure if it has been considered but dygraphs (http://dygraphs.com/)
comes to mind in this case, should be ok also license-wise

I'll definitely take a look at dygraphs to see how it performs.

The biggest advantage we're getting from the current library is the concept of data-grouping allowing us to render several million datapoints on a single page with updates.  Essentially the number of datapoints rendered is based on the size of the graph.

cheers,
