any plans to move to html5?

Explorer

I don't see any way to submit a feature request like via uservoice or something, so I'm hoping the folks at Splunk will see this.

Is there any plan to move from the flash chart module to html5 native canvas charting? I'm specifically interested because it seems like I've run into the limit on the number of rows of data the flash chart can handle. But I'm sure soon the folks with iPads will also want to be splunking data on the go. 🙂

This is a great request. You can submit enhancement requests through support, which will get them triaged and into our tracking system. Although it's also useful to see this here, so we can respond directly and see how many other people are interested in the feature as well. Feel free to submit your request through support, or I can submit it for you.

Cheers, Emma

Emma, I'll ask our folks that have access to our support contract to send it along. Thanks.

I'll do so as well. We're beginning to rollout iPads to all of our upper management as well. Having better support of non-flash users would be great.

I'd say that is a move in the right direction even if it does mean having to learn the new format all over again.

The limit on number of series displayed in charts is configurable. By editing the view XML, you can change that limit (defaults to 250).

Simple XML

In the relevant chart node, add a 'charting.maxCount' option:

<chart>
    ...
    <option name="charting.data.count">1000</option>
</chart>

Advanced XML

In the relevant HiddenChartFormatter module, add:

<module name="HiddenChartFormatter">
    <param name="charting.data.count">1000</param>
    ...
</module>

Yeah, I"ve already seen that from the other question about it. (I'm not a fan of having to go build an xml report for every random splunk I'm doing that I want to see better chart of. Hence why that answer really doesn't impress me, and this question.)

Any update as to the status of the HTML5 charting feature request?

We've heard the request loud and clear from customers large and small. While we can't make official forward looking statements in this forum be rest assured that using Splunk on an iPad is something that we do hope make possible in the future.

The answer we've all been waiting for is here.

Upgrade to 4.3 and you have HTML 5

You may have to edit some advanced XML if you have written them yourself or downloaded them in apps from splunkbase. Look for lines containing <module name="FlashChart"> They force splunk to use flash and not HTML rendering. All good app developers should be releasing updates if this is necessary.
