Amazon Elasticsearch Service now supports Gantt charts, a new visualization in Kibana. Users can now embed Gantt charts into dashboards to enable visualization of events, steps and tasks as horizontal bars. The length of the bars shows the amount of time associated with an event, step or a task. Gantt charts are used to represent a series of events that contain a parent-child relationship. This can be particularly useful in trace analytics, telemetry, and monitoring use cases, in which the users need to understand the overall interaction between traces or events. Gantt charts help users manage their resources by getting an overview of the events or tasks and understanding the relationships between them. 

Gantt chart in Kibana is powered by Open Distro for Elasticsearch, an Apache 2.0-licensed distribution of Elasticsearch. Kibana Reports is supported on all Amazon Elasticsearch Service domains running Elasticsearch 7.9 or greater. To learn more about Open Distro for Elasticsearch and Gantt charts, visit the project website and documentation.

Gantt charts for Amazon Elasticsearch Service are available across 24 regions globally: US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon, N. California), AWS GovCloud (US-Gov-East, US-Gov-West), Canada (Central), South America (Sao Paulo), EU (Ireland, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Stockholm, Milan), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Seoul, Mumbai, Hong Kong), Middle East (Bahrain), China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet, China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD, and Africa (Cape Town).
