A little help on getting started

What I’m looking to do is monitor the hard drive temps on my Freenas box over a long period of time as well as the outside temp to give me a better idea as to when I need to start venting the cupboard they live in and a friend suggested Grafana.

So I’ve install Grafana and looking at the Home Dashboard page and thinking I’ve bitten off more then I can chew here.

I’m sure what I’m trying to do is possible but where the hell do I start?

Which data source do I choose? Does it matter? Are some easier to configure then others?

I’m sure once I get started it will start looking a little easier so any help here in pointing me in the right direction would be very much appreciated.

I dont know Freenas, but i think that should be Unix/linux style, so Influxdb/Telegraf must be work on it. Influxdb/Telegraf is easy, so this can be a entry point.

Excellent thanks I’ll have a look and see what google brings

Thanks again
