Back in March, we announced that Grafana Labs was partnering with Elastic to build an official Elasticsearch plugin for Grafana.

Elasticsearch is one of the most popular data platforms that can be visualized in Grafana.”

“SLO is a favorite word of SREs,” Grafana Labs Principal Software Engineer Björn “Beorn” Rabenstein said during his talk at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA 2019. “Of course, it’s also great for design decisions, to set the right goals, and to set alerting in the right way. It’s everything that is good.” So what happens when things go bad?

We recently had a hackathon at Grafana Labs. Anyone who wanted could get several work days without normal responsibilities to do whatever they found meaningful in the wider Grafana community and/or Grafana Labs commercial offerings. This allowed me to invest some time into Kraken, a project designed for reading out different sensors, and to update it for modern hardware and libraries.

While unit testing and integration testing can give you insight into the individual functionalities of an application, “at times you need some sort of monitoring or testing mechanism which also simulates a user’s behavior to test how the application would work or look to an actual user in the world,” says Grofers Software Development Engineer Yashvardhan Kukreja. That’s where synthetic monitoring comes in.

At Grafana Labs, we believe you should unify your data, not your database. We want to help you with your observability, not own it But what if you have multiple teams using multiple open source and commercial solutions? Not a problem. To give an example, here is a quick demo of Splunk, Elastic, and Loki logs combined into one UI in #Grafana This is more than a dashboard; it's a composite panel with transformations of all three sources Your teams should be able to use best-of-breed technologies rather than being locked into one

Loki doesn't index your logs, and that is a very different approach than popular full-text search engines like Elasticsearch or Solr That sounds like a huge constraint. How can you do powerful searches if you don't index the log lines? After this video, you now know how to use Loki's "filter" capability for forensic troubleshooting. Happy searching!

Grafana provides a powerful and elegant way to create, explore, and share dashboards and data with your team and the world. Grafana is most commonly used for visualizing time series data for Internet infrastructure and application analytics but many use it in other domains including industrial sensors, home automation, weather, and process control.

Grafana has a robust plugin architecture built for extensibility. Visualize data from more than 40 data sources, including commercial databases and web vendors, and add new graph panels with rich data visualization options. There is built in support for many of the most popular time series data sources. It works with Graphite, Elasticsearch, Cloudwatch, Prometheus, InfluxDB and more.

Grafana Labs is the company behind Grafana, the leading open source software for visualizing time series data. Grafana Labs helps users get the most out of Grafana, enabling them to take control of their unified monitoring and avoid vendor lock in and the spiraling costs of closed solutions.
