Questions about Grafana


#1

Good morning everyone.
I figured this would be the best place to post this.

I am considering switching over to Grafana from ELK Stack. I have just ran into so many issues with ELK its becoming a real pain.

I will be installing this on a server Dell 2950 with 8 cores and 32 gigs of ram with 4 TB of space on either Ubuntu 16.x or CentOS not sure on the OS part yet.

I was wondering the following if anyone could answer.

  1. I have a dataset of about 500 gigs of CSV files that I will need a count and be able to search on can I do this in Grafana without using ElasticSearch? Not sure if Grafana uses ElastricSearch.
  2. Can I set the dashboard up to be view able from from the web so if I am on the road or whatever I can just login to it.
  3. Will my server specs be enough to run Grafana?
  4. Can I do GeoMapping from around the world on grafana?

I guess that is all really.
