Hi, Grafana newbie here.
I’ve set up Netdata on one host, exporting data to an InfluxDB server on the same host, and setting Grafana to use the InfluxDB server as a data source. It’s working, AFAICT.
However, when I go to the explorer, the query starts off with ‘FROM’ ‘default’ ‘select measurement’ ‘where’ ‘+’. If I click on ‘select measurement’, it presents a dropdown list of 100 measurements (aka metrics), none of which I’m interested in:
The problem appears to be that Grafana is using the query ‘SHOW MEASUREMENTS LIMIT 100’ to populate the dropdown, but if I manually run the query with the limit removed, there are 3854 measurements, which would make for a very unpleasant dropdown experience.
I can type the name of a measurement that’s not in the dropdown into that field (e.g. netdata.apps.cpu_user.system) and get a graph to show up, but this is rather frustrating and not what I expected.
How can I fix this, so I can explore all of my metrics?
And what is the terminology for all of these concepts? I’m surely using the wrong words, which makes searching really hard.
