Last November, we took an important step forward in our quest for more effective and scalable ways to increase our customers’ observability and access to our platform’s data and analytics. To that end, we launched our GraphQL API, which gives users access to the same datasets we use internally, allowing them to create custom views.
The launch of the Azion Grafana plugin marks the next step in this journey. It combines the versatility of Azion’s Edge Computing Platform with the analytical capabilities of Grafana to bring more flexibility, transparency, and efficiency to your business by providing real-time monitoring, with deep detailing of the performance, availability, and security of your application through the analysis of raw and aggregated data.
This new plugin makes it easy for teams to collaborate on projects and share information using Grafana’s powerful tools to create customized and strategic charts and visualizations for your business, improving communication and productivity.
What does the Azion Grafana plugin offer?
With the Azion Grafana plugin installed, Grafana users can access the “Data Transferred” dashboard, with the same data already available in our Real-Time Metrics, but integrated into the tool you already use.
This includes Edge Caching, Edge Offload, Saved Data, Missed Data, Total Bandwidth Usage, Bandwidth Offloaded, Saved Bandwidth, and Missed Bandwidth panels. Besides that, by using our GraphQL API you can create your own charts and graphs.
