Graphite + Grafana | Time Series Metrics

Performance monitoring describes the gathering and analysis of different performance data. Graphite is one of the most popular open source tools in this field. The basic functionality is receiving data from different sources, whether servers or applications. Influx DB and Open TSDB constitute good alternatives and provide a total individual additional value. In combination with other tools like CollectD, Icinga and StatsD a stack can be established and precisely integrated in an existing environment to extend it. By deploying Grafana the visualization of data is not falling by the wayside due to the web interface with its multiple useful features for display and analysis.

We are glad to welcome you to our Graphite + Grafana training website. Hereafter, we would like to give you an overview of our training concept. It contains beside of our basic information also the introduction of tools to use for a successful performance monitoring. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

To ensure an aim-oriented and efficient realization of this training the number of participants is limited. This enables an intense examination of the course content and the opportunity to settle individual questions and problems.

The exchange between the participants is of particular importance for us. This is also the reason why all participants are invited to dinner so that a lot of scope for discussions and exchange of experience is allowed between the participants outside the workshop hours.
