Live data streaming using Grafana


I just started with Grafana and did some hands-on with Grafana Simple JSON data source. This is based on Request/Response mechanism from Grafana Dashboard to server/browser.

I am looking for the streaming/real-time data to the Grafana dashboard. Is there any possibility to achieve this?

I would like to have a streaming/real-time visualization for sensor data.

Looking for the swift response!

Thanking you,

Hi @microteonicsdemo,

It’s not possible to stream data into Grafana. The closest you can do is update the dashboard every 1 or 5 seconds, with the same request/response mechanism.

This thread has some useful information regarding live data streaming support: Does it support customized datasource?

Thanks @adeverteuil for providing the information.

Thanks @lorenwest for the pointer.
