Hi Grafana Community!
I coming from Elastic background and something I’m missing is the ability to process data stored to storage layer and saving it so it can be used in several visualizations and dashboards.
I did saw Grafana has data transforms(1), but from my understanding is that data is just transformed on runtime (when Dashboards are evoked or refreshed) and can’t be used by other users and in other visualizations. Am I correct?
Finally, if data transforms runs at runtime, isn’t this heavy computationally speaking? I might be wrong but in general is lighter to retrieve data in desired format from the storage layer.
Thanks in advance.
