Arithmetic

Absolute

Function Description Example
abs() Graph the absolute value of the metric. abs(<METRIC_NAME>{*})

Transforms this sine timeseries sin{*}:

into this one abs(sin{*}):

Logarithm

Log base 2

Function Description Example
log2() Graph the Base-2 logarithm of the metric. log2(<METRIC_NAME>{*})

Example:

If a metric, x{*}, increments itself by 1 for each data point, then log2(x{*}) has the following shape:

Log base 10

Function Description Example
log10() Graph the Base-10 logarithm of the metric. log10(<METRIC_NAME>{*})

Example:

If a metric, x{*}, increments itself by 1 for each data point, then log10(x{*}) has the following shape:

Cumulative sum

Function Description Example
cumsum() Graph the cumulative sum of the metric over the visible time window. cumsum(<METRIC_NAME>{*})

Example:

If a metric, const_1{*}, is a constant with the value of 1, then cumsum(const_1{*}) has the following shape:

Integral

Function Description Example
integral() Graph the integral of the metric. integral(<METRIC_NAME>{*})

Note: Datadog’s integral() is the cumulative sum of [time delta] x [value delta] over all consecutive pairs of points in the visible time window for a given metric.
