Hi there all the Grafana users, I am currently using Kibana with elasticsearch for the visualization purposes. Kibana is good for searching facilities, and other different purposes.
But I am finding the alerting feature in the elasticsearch(x-pack) i.e, watcher, very difficult to use. That is not user friendly at all.
Whereas in grafana, the alerting system is pretty simple and straightforward. So, I am thinking that for alerting purposes only, I make a elastic dashboard in grafana and make proper alerts on various conditions.
Till now, I have used only influxdb as the data source(also simplejson) in Grafana and it is pretty awesome and simple to use and I would recommend it 100% to other users.
My question is that Is grafana having the same compatibility and flexibility with elasticsearch as datasource also as it is having with influxdb ? Will I be able to make proper alerts in here OR there are kind of limitations to it ?
this is kind of a suggestion seeking question, like a discussion. So, I hope everybody familiar with this use case answers and directs me in the right way. Thank you.
