Grafana+Centreon

I have an old monitoring solution on centreon and i think there is no centreon data source on Grafana !
Shall i send all collected metrics from centreon to Graphite and add Graphite as a DataSource on Grafana?
is that the only solution ?

I have an old monitoring solution on centreon and i think there is no
centreon data source on Grafana !

Is Centreon really a data store, or does it use some other system such as
MySQL, InfluxDB, Redis, SQLite etc to store its data?

You may be better off checking what service your Centreon setup is using to
store its data, and see whether that is something you can directly point
Grafana at.

Shall i send all collected metrics from centreon to Graphite and add
Graphite as a DataSource on Grafana?

If you can do that, it sounds like it would work.

is that the only solution ?

I seriously doubt that is the only solution.

Getting your data from Centreon exported to any of the data stores listed at
https://grafana.com/docs/grafana/latest/features/datasources/ would work.

I suggest you look at the characterstics of each, consider your familiarity
with any of them, and assess the type of data you need to store, in order to
choose which might be the best for your needs.

Do you plan to continue using Centreon but add Grafana as an additional front-
end visualisation tool, as a long-term solution, or are you just looking at a
one-off export of historical data from Centreon, and moving on, you will be
using some other monitoring tool (which possibly includes Grafana as a
standard front-end)?

centreon and i think there
i’am planning to use only Grafana that’s i don’t want to loose my old monitored hostes (with centreon)
i tried to use graphite export data from centreon and ad it as a data source but i got that error
