Rolling Display of CSV stored data

Hello everyone,

what would be the easiest option to show data stored in daily csv-files on a local file system as a rolling monitor with Grafana Dashboards?

Cheers for any advice!

Would some sort of database be an option? Maybe an SQL database (like MySQL, Postgres, Sqlite) or a logs database (Elasticsearch, Loki)?

Giving Grafana access to files on disk is a potential security risk. It’s possible to write a plugin that does it but we can’t publish that on grafana.com.

There are also some good CSV data source plugins that are worth exploring:
