Grafana is an open source, powerful metrics dashboards and graphics editor tool for Graphite, Elasticsearch, OpenTSDB, Prometheus and InfluxDB and other data sources. Grafana latest version is version 2.6.
Grafana dashboard interface as follows:
Graphite: Graphite is a scalable real-time charts, the latest version 0.9.10
OpenTSDB: OpenTSDB based HBase is a distributed, scalable, real-time monitoring based on information collection and display time-series platform. It supports second-level data collection metrics, use HBase permanent storage, capacity planning can be done, and easy access to the existing monitoring system. OpenTSDB can be obtained from large-scale facility corresponding metrics and storage, indexing, and services, making the data easier to understand, such as web-based, graphical, etc.
Prometheus: is an open source system monitoring systems and services.
InfluxDB: InfluxDB is an open source, distributed, based on time-series database, it has no external dependencies. InfluxDB can be used to record measurements, events, and performance analysis.
Grafana as Kibana alternatives. Grafana most admirable is a visual dashboard that provides tools that can bring together various data sources (such as InfluxDB) measurement data and graphically displayed. Grafana is a branch of Kinana, but it does not provide support to Elasticsearch as a data source. Fortunately, after Grafana 2.5 version adds support for Elasticsearch to as a data source. Data analysis in Sematext site presentation.
Elasticsearch not normally used for storing measurement data, but is often used to store data recorded continuously over time, such as log data or event data (you can think of Things IoT). Grafana 2.5 supports only the value in the display area of the display type, but version 2.6 started supporting text data table shows.
