Removing Grafana DB in grafana.ini in case IaC approach

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
    Grafana operator for k8s

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    Remove external DB configuration from grafana.ini and then the DB from cloud (decrease cloud costs)

Dear community,

could you tell me, please, what does Grafana store in the database?

From what I understood from the docs,
when no specific DB, Grafana creates a SQLite DB just to store its own configuration.

I’m going to use IaC approach (all configurations and dashboards are stored as code). Does it make sense for me to create an additional DB (say external DB) for Grafana? I just want to reduce resources cost in my cloud.

thank you,

Still looking for this info, if anyone knows it, please help :slight_smile:

Thank you,
