Learn how to interpret a calendar heat map.

Visual elements


The query time range determines calendar format. Depending on the time range selected, the calendar groups cells into hours, days, months, or years.


Each resource in the metric category that you are tracking appears in a separate row.


Each cell represents data for one increment of the specified time span. For example, if the query uses a one hour span, each cell represents one hour of data.

Cell color indicates relative metric density. The heat map color scale can be applied independently to each row or to all cells uniformly.

Interactive elements
