As a Grafana noob I got to the step Choose a data source type in the Add data source wizard and I’m stuck. There is a list of logos and brand names but I’m having no luck looking through them all to find something that you point at data files and tell it how to parse them.
This is something a lot of new Grafana users are confused about as they have data in text or CSV files and want to visualize this in Grafana.
But since files on a disk don’t provide a query interface, this doesn’t work. In order to visualize this data, it first needs to be loaded into a data source such as a SQL database, an online spreadsheet system, or some other service that provides a query interface.
