Welcome to my course on Grafana

Grafana is an analytics platform for all of your metrics. Grafana allows you to query, visualize, alert on and understand your metrics no matter where they are stored. Create, explore, and share dashboards with your team and foster a data driven culture. Trusted and loved by the community.

This is a Learn by example course, where I demonstrate all the concepts discussed so that you can see them working, and you can try them out for yourself as well.

With this course, comes accompanying documentation that you can access for free. You will then be able to match what you see in the videos and copy/paste directly from my documentation and see the same result.

In this course we will,

Install Grafana from Packages

Create a domain name, install an SSL certificate and change the default port

Explore the Graph, Singlestat, Gauge, Bar Gauge, Table, Text, Heatmap and Logs Panels

Create many different types of Data Sources from MySQL, Zabbix, InfluxDB, Prometheus and Loki

We will configure their various collection processes such as MySQL Event Scheduler, Telegraf, Node Exporters, SNMP agents and Promtail

We will look at graphing Time Series data versus Non Time Series data

We will also install dashboards for each of the Data Sources, experimenting with community created dashboards plus experimenting with our own

We will monitor SNMP Devices using Telegraf Agent and InfluxDB Data Sources

We will create Annotation Queries and link the Log and Graphs panels together

We will look at Dynamic Dashboard Variables, Dynamic Tables, Dynamic Singlestats and Dynamic Graphs

We will look at creating Value Groups/Tags and how to use them with different kinds of data sources

We will set up an alerting channel, understand the different alerting options, configure an example of it to detect offline SNMP devices and demonstrate receiving email alerts via our local SMTP server

We will then create a dashboard for a 24 port Cisco Switch using methods applicable to both the Zabbix and the InfluxDB Data Sources

At the end of the course, you will have your own dedicated working Grafana Server, which will be in the cloud, with SSL, a domain name, with many example Data Sources and collectors configured, that you can call your own, ready for you to take it to the next level.

Once again, this is a Learn by example course, with all the example commands available for you to copy and paste. I demonstrate them working, and you will be able to do that to.

You are now ready to continue.

Thanks for taking part in my course, and i'll see you there.
