Course Description by Instructors:
Grafana is the leading open-source tool for visualizing metrics, time series data and application analytics. The instructor will demonstrate many things in this course, with all the example commands provided for you to easily copy and paste.

This is a Learn by example course, where the author demonstrates 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, You 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.

Who this course is for:
  • Network, Systems and Database Administrators
  • Infrastructure Monitoring Specialists
  • IT Platform Specialists
  • DevOps Technicians
  • Enthusiasts wanting a better understanding and better visibility of their networks in the home or office
  • Someone who is curious and wants a good understanding of what Grafana does and what it’s good at.
