How we use Grafana and Prometheus to monitor the traffic of our many GitHub repositories

If you want to understand the popularity of your GitHub repositories, knowing the number of stars isn’t enough. GitHub understands this, and that’s why the team released traffic insights. Anyone with push access to a repository can view these insights, which include: full clones, visitors from the past 14 days, referring sites, and popular content in the traffic graph.

How the new Datadog plugin enhancements extend interoperability for our customers

At Grafana Labs, we have a “big tent” philosophy: We believe our users should be able to determine their own observability strategy and choose their own tools, so we help users bring different data sources together. Datadog is a powerful product used by many teams, and we hear a lot from customers about how we should further embrace and support this critical data source — which is why we created the Datadog data source plugin a few years ago.

How to use AWS IoT SiteWise Edge and Grafana to collect and monitor industrial data on-premises

The AWS IoT SiteWise plugin for Grafana was created to enable AWS IoT SiteWise customers to visualize and monitor industrial equipment data using Grafana dashboards. Industrial customers use AWS IoT SiteWise to collect, process, and monitor their industrial data at scale. This plugin allows them to use Grafana dashboards to monitor this data, stored by AWS IoT SiteWise in the AWS Cloud.

Reduce costs and increase performance with query caching in Grafana Cloud

We are excited to announce the launch of query caching in Grafana Cloud, which can significantly reduce load times and costs of your most popular Grafana dashboards. Now, when the same query is submitted repeatedly, the results will come back from the cache rather than the data source itself. This not only lowers load times for popular dashboards, but will also reduce API costs for your data sources and decrease the likelihood that those APIs will rate-limit or throttle requests.

Introducing the Honeycomb plugin for Grafana

Over the years, we’ve heard many versions of the same familiar story: large businesses struggling with observability data living in several different systems. At Grafana Labs, our “big tent” philosophy is based on the belief that our users should determine their own observability strategy and choose their own tools. Grafana allows them to bring together and understand all their data, no matter where it lives.
