I have a process which creates a json file. I would like to plot that json file, I can dump that file into influx if needed. Is it possible to use grafana to plot it programmatically?
I’m sure that’s possible, but Grafana doesn’t support plotting json document out of the box. Grafana supports datasource plugins so there may be some plugin for achieving what you want. Using influxdb or similar time-series database will probably give you some more options regarding aggregation/filtering/functions etc, but depends on if your json document is small or very big.
