Chord diagram widget

About the chord diagram widget

The chord diagram widget displays the relationships between data in a matrix. Data is arranged radially around a circle with the different relationships drawn as arcs connecting the data points. This type of diagram can be useful when you need to include a large number of data points and illustrate relationships between them.

The widget below is a sample of a web server activity for one day with the following configuration: 

  • Time Range - 1 day
  • The Field to show is set to count since the connections between protocol and port are events where both appear. Therefore the count of events is the relevant data in this example.
  • The Actions field included selections for the port and the protocol. In this case All was specified for both since we want to see all traffic.

Mouse over the connections in the diagram to open tooltips with the count details.
