Data Source Options

Hello - I have a couple questions about the supported data sources:

  1. Assuming I can implement any of your supported sources, do you have any recommendation for which will work best on resource-restricted hardware? (think a Raspberry Pi)
  2. If the answer to #1 is either Postgres or MySQL, can you tell me what features are not available from these sources that are available from the other more specific time-series data stores?
  1. You can run grafana on very limited resources. As for running a tsdb on limited resources that depends on your volume of metrics/data you want to store and query

  2. mysql or postgres are general purpose databases and not as specialised for metrics as Graphite or Prometheus. So you loose efficiency and time series query features
