Since mid of december we are running an InfluxDB for our performance data after the graphite server died
To show the performance data in Icingaweb2 I understood that we need to setup a grafana frontend first and then direct Icingaweb2 to grafana.
With graphite this has been straight forward: We never had to modify any graphs graphite offered. That’s not the case for grafana, as I see: We have to:
- Set up a new dashboard panel (at least) in Grafana for each command that sends output to InfluxDB
- Configure the Graph icingaweb2-grafana module to the appropriate panel
Isn’t there a way to
a) let Grafana dynamically create a panel for (autogen-)metrics in InfluxDB, and
b) let icingaweb2-grafana point dynamically to this panel
