This is my very first attempt (Green Noob) to use GRAFANA and I just need some pointers to figure out IF this is the correct tool to use or if am I wasting time.
What Grafana version I would like to use - Cloud Version
What are you trying to achieve? I would like to use the cloud version of Grafana to build dashboard(s) that I can see, using any device with internet access
How are you trying to achieve it? I have not started at all. My question is based on the helicopter view if it can be done and IF, what are the building steps?
Before starting I just want to get a high-level view:
Should I create a DB on the Grafana cloud environment?
Shall I then add records to the database by configuring MQTT to load the data as and when it is being published?
OR do I create an MYSQL database on a local RPi and configure Grafana to read the database on my LAN (Sounds like a security risk)
Thanking in advance
