Join us for our upcoming meetup! Matt Gruett from TDS Telecom will be leading a how-to presentation on building visualizations in Kibana 5.2.

Doors will open at 6pm and we'll have the how-to presentation start at 6:30pm.

Learn what Kibana tricks TDS Telecom has used to show data percentages with Kibana’s pie chart visualization and real-world examples of the split slices and split charts features. Kibana’s histogram capabilities will get a lot of attention as well including how-tos on splitting histogram bars, building percentage-based histograms, forcing histograms into defined time periods, adjusting the Y-axis scale, using IP networks to create custom filters and creating fill-based histograms for visually plotting network bandwidth. Other visualizations such as mapping latitude and longitude, creating export tables and showing top 10 and bottom 10 data summaries will be discussed as well. This time will be largely interactive with plenty of time for Q&A.
