Tired off creating Grafana dashboards manually? Let’s automate it.

We have already discussed the creation of Grafana dashboards and alerts in my previous blogs. We were doing that manually. But think of, if we need to do that in more than 10 environments then we need to repeat that manual process again and again and sometimes we get frustrated by doing all these repetitive stuff. We should have some automated process for doing this. So Continue Reading

Determine Kafka broker health using Kafka stream application’s JMX metrics and setup Grafana alert

Slack notification channel: First, open the URL http://localhost:3000 in the browser and log in to the Continue Reading

Let’s create your first Grafana dashboard

In my previous blog, we discussed the setup of Grafana-Graphite for JMX monitoring.  Now we will create a first Grafana dashboard where we will create Grafana queries to visualize JMX metrics stored in Graphite.
