Pictorial Chart Viz

Splunk Cloud
This app gives you a new way to visualize your data, allowing you to better communicate information in dashboards and reports. After installing this app you will see Pictorial Chart Viz as an additional item in the visualization picker in Search and Dashboards.

The Pictorial Chart Viz provides an infographic style chart showing the relative proportions of data points using a grid of custom icons. You can use the Pictorial Chart Viz to provide information at a glance, in a dashboard panel.

Version Support

7.3, 7.2, 7.1, 7.0, 6.6, 6.5, 6.4

Who is this app for?

This app is for dashboard designers who want to compare relative sizes of metrics in an infographic style pictorial chart.

How does the app work?

This app provides a visualization that you can use in your own apps and dashboards.

To use it in your dashboards, simply install the app, and create a search that provides the values you want to display.

Usecases for the Pictorial Chart Visualization:

  • Displaying server status based on CPU, Memory, I/O, and Disk usage
  • Showing user or customer ratings in a scale
  • Comparing the ratio of good vs bad results or outcomes
  • Showing the comparative size of events related to eachother

The following fields can be used in the search:
- label (required, defaults to the first field): The label for a group of related items.
- value (required, defaults to teh second field): The value for a unique group.
- icon (optional): This selects the icon to use in the pictorial chart.
- color (optional): Used to set the color of the icon in the chart.
- Options can be overwritten, so if type or color is set multiple times in the search results, the last value will be used.

Example Search

| makeresults count=5
| streamstats count as id
| eval icon=case(id==1, "frown", id==2, "flushed", id==3, "grin", id==4, "grin-stars",id==5, "grin-hearts")
| eval label=case(id==1, "Unhappy", id==2, "Unsure", id==3, "Happy", id==4, "Amazing",id==5, "Love It")
| eval value = id + random()%5
| sort id
| table label, value, icon

This results in:


Tokens are generated each time you click an item. This can be useful if you want to populate another panel on the dashboard with a custom search, or link to a new dashboard with the tokens carying across.

Label text: This is the name of the selected group. Default value: $pc_label_token$
Value : This is the value of the selected group you clicked. Default value: $pc_value_token$
