So, I am having a problem getting VMPerf-To-Graphite to work with Grafana
First off, I am sending my graphite data from that script to Influx with the template defined as:
“vmperf.* .group.vm.measurement” so I think i am getting tags correctly (they work everywhere i expect them to work.
My Influx query at the command line gets me the results I am looking for:
SELECT top(“value”,vm,5) from CPU where time > now() - 5m
time top vm - -- -- --- -- <some epoch> 100 virtualmachine1 <some epoch> 100 virtualmachine2 <some epoch> 99 virtualmachine3 <some epoch> 99 virtualmachine4 <some epoch> 99 virtualmachine5
but when i try and graph that query in grafana without a group by, I get things in the legend like:
CPU.vm (no data)
CPU.top Max: 100 Min: 99
so if i add a group by vm to the query, I get all 600 of my VMs and their values returned, and if I change the query to:
SELECT vm,top(“value”,5) from CPU where time > now() - 5m
the same thing happens…
What am I doing wrong?
