How do I create a stacked bar chart?

Builder

I have 3 servers: host=host1, host2, and host3
From these servers I get s_status=ok, nok

I would like to get a graph where I get number of ok from all three servers in one column with servers listed with different colors in the same column.

Eks (Selecting Column as display format)

s_status=ok | timechart count by s_status

This gives me each a column with the sum of all three servers (correct number, but missing the color of each server)

Then I try

s_status=ok | timechart count by host

This gives me the three servers side by side with different colors.

I want them stacked with each server in the same column, but different colors and size depending on the number of ok

Maybe I need to use chart instead of timechart, but I do not know how to put it together.

When you're on the visualizations tag (you can see the graph), look for the formatting options, there's an option to stack there.
I'd say you're better to go with your first option though, that way you can have your 'ok's stacked as blue, and your 'nok's stacked as red.... which is more alarming to see than a gap in blue

Hi lakromani,

there is a dropdown menu with some format options for your visualization.

If you click Format -> Genereal -> Stack Mode: stacked its might be what you are looking for.

You are correct, just as pwmcity implied to. Thanks.

Hi,

to get them stacked: Stacked is a format option of the column chart:

Is your search s_status=ok | timechart count by host in addition to the stacked option what you wanted? Or do you need something else?
