Hi dnsmichi ,
Just re-read your post, you have mentioned I am running distributed setup. Does this mean I am not running on top down config sync mode (as I am not running the global-templates) and the setup is just a Master with multiple clients?
Thanks for that command, I was able to see duplicate entries which I have now removed and the dashboard looks fine. I am now in the process of sending the same to Grafana via Graphite and see how it works.
