Bubble diagram

The bubble diagram visualization displays series of data grouped into packed circles.


Bubble size

The radius of circles depends on the type of metric aggregations.

For more information, see Y-axis aggregations.

Buckets aggregations

The buckets aggregations determine what information is shown in the diagram.

You can do a maximum of two aggregations at a time. The first aggregation will create the parent circles, while the second aggregation will create the child circles.

Parent circles look slightly different to the children ones. Parent circles have a thicker border and the label is written in bold.

The parents bubbles are divided by color. If you do a subaggregation (child), you will see the bubbles divided by family. Child bubbles are located near the parent and all have the same color. If you drag a bubble, all members of the family will move.
