How can I put time series data into one of the database that grafana support

I have just stepped onto grafana. And after my installation, I realized that grafana do not help capture networking data or cpu info, it is just a displaying tool to show the data already saved in one of the database that grafana support. So how can I store my networking data and cpu activities into database like MySQL?

Hi,

That’s correct. I would suggest you to look into tools like collectd or similar. If you can use something else than mysql I would suggest you to looking into prometheus.
