Open source analytics and monitoring solution.

Data is easier to understand when it’s presented beautifully. From standard graphs to geomaps and heat maps, Grafana gives developers the ability to create and share data visualizations for infrastructure metrics in ways that speak to every team member. Get access to hundreds of dashboards and plugins in the Grafana library to find more options on how to present and share data.

Grafana is often used alongside Prometheus, the free monitoring tool. Luckily, both of these tools are available as One-Click Apps on Linode. Launch Prometheus to get your data monitoring up to speed and get started with Grafana.
