Local Dashboard Integration

Dashboards come standard with all Hosted Graphite plans which is accessible through the Hosted Graphite app.

If you have a local dashboard installation such as Grafana and wish to use Hosted Graphite as a data source, you can accomplish this in a few easy steps.

Allow permission to access your Hosted Graphite data with an Access Key

In the Hosted Graphite App menu, click on Access and select Access Keys. Click on Add Access Key in the upper right-hand corner. Give your Access Key a name and select Graphite (this will give the external application access to the Graphite data).

Copy the Access Key URL and read more details about Access Keys here.

Add the Hosted Graphite Data Source to a local Grafana Instance

In the Grafana Dashboard menu, navigate to Connections => Data Sources and select Graphite.

Note: Checking the default box will make the Hosted Graphite data source the primary data source when building new panels.

More information about Graphite Data Sources is documented here.
