Issue 4588

The metric filter in atsd_series queries can now accept entity column as part of the filter:

SELECT metric, entity, tags, date_format(MAX(time)) as "max_time"
  FROM atsd_series
WHERE datetime >= NOW - 14*DAY -- condition to select series with last insert date within the last 14 days
  AND ( metric = 'disk_used' AND entity IN ('nurswgvml006', 'nurswgvml007', 'nurswgvml010', 'nurswgvml502')
     OR metric = 'cpu_user'  AND entity IN ('nurswgvml010', 'nurswgvml502')
     OR metric = 'cpu_busy'  AND entity = 'nurswgvml006'
GROUP BY metric, entity, tags
  HAVING MAX(time) < NOW - 24 * HOUR -- condition to exclude series that have recent data

Issue 4611

The multiple-column setting is applicable to wildcard configurations in bar widgets.

If the settings is set to true, series with the same entity and tags are added to the same column.

This applies to derived series which is placed into the same column along with the underlying series.

  type = bar
  group = label-format
  hide-empty-columns = true
  column-label-format = tags.mount_point

    mount_point = *
    file_system = *

    multiple-column = true
    label = Used
    alias = used
    metric = disk_used
    color = green
    label = Size
    alias = size
    metric = disk_size
    color = orange
    display = false
    label = Free
    value = value("size") - value("used")
    color = grey
