Using punchcards

The punchcard visualization is deprecated as of version 1.5.0. It will be archived and removed from Splunkbase on December 21, 2024. After removal, visualizations previously installed in environments will remain available but unsupported.

As an alternative, you can create punchcard charts with Dashboard Studio. For more details, see Punchcard charts in the Dashboard Studio manual.

What punchcards visualize

Punchcards can visualize cyclical trends in your data. This visualization shows circles representing a metric aggregated over two dimensions, such as hours of the day and days of the week. Using a punchcard, you can see relative values for a metric where the dimensions intersect.

Use case examples

  • Website or network activity
  • Retail trend analysis
  • Environmental or geological activity

Data for punchcards

To build a punchcard, use any data that contains a timestamp and the metric you are tracking.
