Metrics#

Why are results sometimes inaccurate?

OpenSearch Dashboards' counts are approximated. It uses a cardinality aggregations algorithm to count data, which prioritize performace over accuracy. These cardinality algorithms are designed to handle big ammounts of data, offering results fast. For this reason, there's always an error associated to these counts. Usually, you will find these problems with unique counts (e.g. total count of commits).

You can learn more about this topic and the precision error in the cardinality aggregation section of the OpenSearch Dashboards' documentation.
