Query firing when Dashboard is not in focus


I wanted to know if Grafana fires queries/apis when the panel/dashboard is viewed (in focus) or whether the queries are fired in the background for all dashboards (based on the configured time period).
If it’s fired in the background, then can it be switched to on-demand ?

For price sensitive resources (such as Cloudwatch API usage), this would be essential to consider.

Hi @prasanthrsun

Check out the lazy-loading feature for Grafana dashboards. It should provide a lot of useful information.
