I've implemented several metrics of a custom application. The metrics basically show what the users do in their application (measures how long a certain call for users did take in the timeframe).
The issue is, between the measurements, it's not guaranteed that certain functions will actually be used, which leads to charts like this, since there is no data available.
What I could do now is inserting a data point on every measurement with the duration "0", but that would create the issue that the count (how often functions are used) will be wrong, since the sum(function) would always be at least 1.
What I want:
I want to measure the duration, and do counts, and I want continous lines between the data points, even if there were no measurements for a certain timeframe.
Is that possible?
It's not possible, charts will have blanks if there is no data. Passing empty values, as you mentioned may corrupt some counting.
