SigNoz Dashboard vs New Relic: Efficiency and Usability
TLDR Brad suggested improving SigNoz Dashboard to be more like New Relic's, for easier usage. Pranay acknowledged and asked for further details to better understand user needs and potential improvements.

One of the graphs that I find very useful is the amount of time spend in different areas of the code (specifically, database, application, and eternal calls). I struggled a bit to get that displayed in signoz. What I ended up doing is using grafana with the clickhouse datasource to recreate it (and it worked, for the most part). I might suggest that focusing on trying to recreate something like the New Relic Dashboard might help adoption of SigNoz. Having that kind of information available right out of the box would be amazing.

Trying to understand this use case a bit better - was the out of the box graphs in SigNoz with latency, DBs and external not helpful for this.
Can you share the dashboard which you used in Grafana so that we can get a better idea of what you were trying to see
# External SELECT DATE_TRUNC('minute', timestamp) AS interval, SUM(durationNano) / 1000000 as ms FROM signoz_traces.signoz_index_v2 WHERE externalHttpMethod!='' AND serviceName='myservice' GROUP BY DATE_TRUNC('minute', timestamp) ORDER BY interval ; # Database SELECT DATE_TRUNC('minute', timestamp) AS time, SUM(durationNano) / 1000000 FROM signoz_traces.signoz_index_v2 WHERE dbName!='' AND serviceName='myservice' GROUP BY DATE_TRUNC('minute', timestamp) ORDER BY time ;
And then my "other" bucket is just latency minus those two numbers.
Also, note -- I wouldn't say these are super great, but it is the road I'm going down, since this is the kind of information that I find useful. I'm not sure the Ruby OTEL collector gives me the best data to work with.
And, all that being said, I may have been able to build similar in the signoz dashboard. BUT, i think having something like that working out of the box would be amazing.
• To take a look. See waht I can optimize. I have all the time in the world for this.
• Something is wrong and I need to find out what and why as fast as possible.
