Querying ClickHouse with DataStation
Data source setup
First create a new data source in the left sidebar.
Give it a nice name so you easily can find it later. And select ClickHouse in the Vendor dropdown.
If you are connecting to
localhost:8123 (the default), you can
leave the host field blank. If your port is 8123 then you can always
omit the colon and port and just specify the address.
Next fill in the database, username, and password fields if necessary. Leaving these fields blank is ok too.
SSH Proxy [Optional]
If you want connect to a ClickHouse database on a remote server through an SSH proxy, you will need to set up the SSH connection to that server first. Once you do, you can select that connection in the "Via Server" dropdown within the data source editor.
Now create a new panel and select the Database type.
Run a query
Enter your query and hit play!
You can always download the results of a panel by hitting the download button. Or you can reference the results in other panels.
Graph the results
Create a new panel. Change the type to Graph. Select the previous Database panel as the panel source. Then select the X and Y columns you'd like to graph.
Finally, click the play button to generate the graph. You can download the graph as a PNG by clicking the download button.
Note: Ctrl-r is a shortcut for hitting the play button when you are focused on one panel.
