Using Grafana to Visualize Prometheus Data
While Prometheus is a wonderful took for keep track of our metrics, its graphing and dashboard capabilities leave a lot to be desired. This is where Grafana comes in. Grafana allows us to create beautiful persistent dashboards using our Prometheus data. These dashboards let us gain insight in the parts of our infrastructure that are most important to us, without having to continually manually query with PromQL or viewing and click on our recording rules. From our Node Exporter data to tracking our current alerts, Grafana provides us with visual insight into what's happening.
