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.
