Connect local databases to Grafana Cloud

Sorry if I’ve missed something obvious, but what would you guys say is the best way of displaying data from a locally hosted database (e.g. MS SQL Server) on Grafana Cloud? Just add a TCP route from the company router to the database server? Or are there connector apps that will do this in a better way?

Yes, that is pretty much what you need to do.

  • Host: put the IP address where your server is, including the port that you use for SQL Server (1433 or whatever), e.g.
  • Database: the name of the SQL Server database
  • Authentication: I use SQL Server authentication
  • User and Password: same as what you would use in SSMS

Good luck!
