CentOS 7 3.10.0-693.21.1.el7.x86_64
mysql Ver 15.1 Distrib 5.5.56-MariaDB
I am configuring my grafana+Zabbix stack now, so I have a question.
I want to use direct db access to Zabbix mysql because it’s a bit rapid than Zabbix API.
I create a new data source in grafana for mysql (zabbix, mysql and grafana are located together):
Then I create another one for Zabbix (I use alexanderzobnin-zabbix-datasource plugin) and checked “Direct DB Connection - Enable”. But I couldn’t save my data source because it requires Zabbix API details!
But why? I want to use direct db instead API, so I do not have to specify Zabbix api details!
So I put here my Zabbix username and password and after that I could save data source.
After that, default “Zabbix Server Dashboard” switched on.
But now I’m not sure if I use direct db or API connection…
