Over the last couple of years, in this blog, multiple databases are demonstrated which can be deployed on the Azure IoT Edge:
Persisting incoming telemetry in a local database is useful for multiple purposes. One of them is creating a custom dashboard eg. written in Blazor.
In this blog, we explore how to deploy the popular InfluxDB. This open-source time-series database is specialized in Internet of Things usage. And on top of that, let’s explore how Grafana can be deployed on the edge too. Grafana is an open source analytics and interactive visualization web application.
We see how it can be connected to the Influx database:
As you see here, we need a custom Azure IoT Edge module (called ‘writer’) that is capable of writing incoming telemetry to the Influx database. There, the telemetry is picked up and displayed by Grafana.
Let’s see how this works.Doorgaan met het lezen van “Using Influx database and Grafana on the Azure IoT Edge”
