Starting Grafan wtith custom.ini file Issue

Hi All,

I am new to Grafan, and need to adjust dashboard refresh time to 1s or less (i.e ideally 0.5s).
I have followed the document in building a custom.ini file, and try to use as shown below:


I would appreciate if you could help, and support.

Depending on which version of Grafana you are using, this may not be possible.

“Dashboard: A global minimum dashboard refresh interval is now enforced and
defaults to 5 seconds.”

Antony.

Thanks Pooh for replying.
I am using the latest version of Grafana 7.0.3.
As I understand from the document (Configuration) I can override the defaults by creating a custom configuration file and select minimum-refresh-rate to 1s.

Was this removed from the current version?
Thanks again for your support.

If the custom.ini file is located under the expected location for you system then you don’t need to pass--config argument to the server.

However, the error you get is because you don’t have permissions to the C:\Program Files\GrafanaLabs\grafana\data\log\grafana.log. Can you check the permissions there?

Hi @spapagian,
Thanks for your reply, I do as you suggest and still receive the same “Access is denied” message, although I am using an administrator on my personal laptop “Windows 10”.


Is there anything I need to change on Grafana folder security permission?
