Observe Performance Cookbook: Limit Query Time Windows


A broadly defined query in an explorer or worksheet is using more query credits than expected.


Use the filter bar to select the minimum time needed for the worksheet’s use case, and save the worksheet.


Adding stricter filters to queries is a technique to reduce the amount of data being processed. For instance, if your Monitor is based on cpu_load you can use pick_col or drop_col to remove unrelated columns from the dataset that the monitor evaluates.
