##Module Description

Grafana is an open source, metrics dashboard and graph editor for Graphite, InfluxDB and OpenTSDB.

This module is intended to be used in combination with puppet-graphite. At the moment you will need modules like apache or nginx to configure the webservices which will serve the grafana scripts.

##Setup

What grafana affects:

  • dowloads/installs/configures files for Grafana

###Beginning with Grafana

Install Grafana with default parameters. In this case grafana will be installed at /opt/grafana and it will listen on localhost:80 for a graphite server. You will also need the apache module (or nginx, etc.)

Here we configure Apache 2.2 with Grafana on port 8080.


  class { 'apache': default_vhost => false }

  apache::vhost { 'my.grafana.domain':
    servername      => 'my.grafana.domain',
    port            => 8080,
    docroot         => '/opt/grafana',
    error_log_file  => 'grafana_error.log',
    access_log_file => 'grafana_access.log',
    directories     => [
      {
        path            => '/opt/grafana',
        options         => [ 'None' ],
        allow           => 'from All',
        allow_override  => [ 'None' ],
        order           => 'Allow,Deny',
      }
    ]
  }->
  class { 'grafana': }

###Configure Graphite and Elasticsearch

  class {'grafana':
    graphite_host      => 'graphite.my.domain',
    elasticsearch_host => 'elasticsearch.my.domain',
  }

###Configure InlfuxDB

When we use InfluxDB we have to set the user and password to access the influxdb_dbpath. And we need the user and password for the database /db/grafana, which has to exist on the influxdb.

  class {'grafana':
    influxdb_host   => 'influxdb.my.domain',
    influxdb_dbpath => '/db/dbname',
    influxdb_user   => 'grafana',
    influxdb_pass   => 'grafana',
    influxdb_grafana_user   => 'grafana',
    influxdb_grafana_pass   => 'grafana',
  }

##Usage

Hostname of graphite server. Default is 'localhost'

#####graphite_port

Port of graphite service. Default is 80

#####elasticsearch_scheme

#####opentsdb_scheme

Example: If TIME_ZONE in graphite-web config file local_settings.py is set to America/New_York, then set timezoneOffset to "-0500" (for UTC - 5 hours) Example: If TIME_ZONE is set to UTC, set this to "0000" Default is '0000'

##Requirements

###Modules needed:

stdlib by puppetlabs

###Modules recommend:

puppet-graphite for graphite installation.

##Limitations

This module is tested on CentOS 6.5 and should also run without problems on

  • RHEL/CentOS/Scientific 6+
  • Debian 6+
  • Ubunutu 10.04 and newer

This module provides only the Grafana installation and config. The webservice to serve Grafana has to be realized with modules like apache.
