Grafana is real-time data visualization and monitoring software. It can be used to display system monitoring metrics, IoT data, and log events. It supports many sources of data, including databases (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL), cloud provider's services (e.g. AWS, Google Cloud), and monitoring systems (e.g. Prometheus). Grafana provides a flexible dashboard configuration for creating personalized interfaces and also has a wide range of plugins and integrations with other tools.
