Use your charts

Once you've created a chart, you can customize the appearance of it to best present the data. You can share a chart in different formats and add a chart to a new or existing dashboard.

Change the appearance of your chart

When you run your query in NRQL mode or view your chart while using metrics and events to specify data, New Relic analyzes your data and applies a chart type that fits your data.

There are several options of chart types to choose from. To change the chart type, use the Chart type menu to the right of the current chart.

one.newrelic.com > All capabilities > Query your data: Example of the chart type menu.

Customize your charts

While we try our best to optimize how we display your data, sometimes you may have other needs. Depending on the chart type, there are additional customization options available.


The system used for representing byte units (such as KB, MB, GB, TB, etc.) in these charts follows the metric representation. This means that:

  • 1 KB (kilobyte) = 1,000 bytes
  • 1 MB (megabyte) = 1,000 KB
  • 1 GB (gigabyte) = 1,000 MB
  • 1 TB (terabyte) = 1,000 GB

This metric system is in line with the International System of Units (SI), which uses powers of 10 for calculations and representation.

Read the sections below to learn more about the customization features. You can also see this blog and companion video to get a guided walkthrough for a few of the customization options.

Chart share and view options

Most charts have various options, including a chart-embed option, getting a chart as an image, and adding a chart to a dashboard. See Import, export, add, and share dashboards and charts

Use open-source charting library

You can use Nerdpacks to create your own custom visualizations. We've also teamed up with Formidable so you can use an open-source charting library, and quickly add unique "victory charts" to your dashboards. To learn about these custom visualization Nerdpacks, watch this short video (approx. 4 minutes).
