As everyone knows, the Grafana project began with a goal to make the dashboarding experience better for everyone, and to make it easy to create beautiful and useful dashboards like this one.

Have you heard about using the hash ring in Loki and Cortex? Here is a short version: In Cortex and Loki, the ring is a space divided by tokens into smaller segments.

In addition to the tokens, each ingester also has an entry with its ID, address, and the latest heartbeat timestamp updated periodically.
