I want to display a metric in Grafana as a (horizontal) bar gauge with sorted values. I'm aware that the bar gauge itself doesn't provide a sorting mechanism, so I'm using the respective PromQL funtion:

sort_desc(rate(my_metric[5m]))

But the panel remains unsorted:

unsorted bar gauge panel

Why does Grafana ignore the sorting, and how do I fix it?

Most likely you have the type in the panel options set to "Range" (the default). Change it to "Instant" and sorting should work the way you expect.

Grafana panel options: Type "Instant"
