Run Grafana in Docker with InfluxDB and Graphite support

There’s a number of times we might want to use Grafana for visualization our data for better research. As a QA engineer, when doing load test our services, I use Grafana with InfluxDB and Graphite in Gatling.

First thing first, to trigger up InfluxDB with Graphite plugin, use this command.

docker run -p 8086:8086 -p 2003:2003 \
-e INFLUXDB_GRAPHITE_ENABLED=true \
influxdb

Run command line in Docker to check graphite db is created

docker exec -it {influxdb_process_ID} influx

Some configuration in Grafana

  • Data sources configuration
  • Dashboard settings

And here we go

That’s it.

Hope it helps.
