Measure of dashboard performances

Hi!
I’m currently migrating some dashboards from Prometheus to Thanos and I’m looking for a way to measure the performance of these two datasources. I tried to get some info from the grafana_datasource_request_duration_seconds metric but it’s not precise enough for my need.
I already tried to deploy existing dashboard for internal grafana metrics (id 411 & 3590) but it doesn’t work with my current metrics (I’m currently using grafana 7.2.0).
Does someone has an idea on how to do that ?
Thanks !

Hi,

Since you are using older version, try those dashboard on older versions too. (They might have breaking changes).

Hope it helps.

Good Luck

Hi, thanks for your answer.

Sadly these dashboards are already olds (3/4 years).

It would be very helpful to expose a metric containing the response time of each dashboard with their current datasources.

Do you know if in the Grafana API I can find this kind of information? If yes, I can try to build my own metrics based on that.

I’m gonna try to modify the existing dashboards that I found and see if I can update the metrics to match my needs but I highly doubt it.

Hi,

Did you try and get the metrics enabled on grafana :

They are exposed to http://localhost:3000/metrics.

Hope it helps.

Good Luck
