There are too many lines on my graph, can I only display the most important ones?

Problem

When using a grouped query there are sometimes too many lines displayed on the graph, and you might end up with something not easy to read e.g.:

too_many_metrics_1

… where you only need to focus on the hosts with high load values here.

Solution

The top function is a good fit to display only the few relevant lines on the graph:

too_many_metrics_2
