Can anyone help me to differentiate icinga vs grafana.
Here are my opinions / ideas:
- What is main difference between ICINGA and Grafana?
Icinga is a monitoring system, Grafana is a data visualisation system.
Icinga works on a timescale of minutes and hours (to days and years), Grafana
works on a timescale of seconds and minutes (to days and years).
- Why we need to use Icinga instead of grafana?
Because you want to set up service checks for things like disk space,
processes running, package updates available, active user accounts… and
raise alerts when these service checks indicate a problem.
- Why we need to use grafana instead of icinga?
Because you want to visualise time-series data from a data store and be able
to zoom in and investigate the data, combine graphs to see correlations, etc.
- We can integrate icinga to grafana? How ?
I do not believe that is possible, nor do I see that it would be useful.
- Which monitoring tool is user friendly ICINGA or GRAFANA?
Grafana is not a monitoring tool; it doesn’t perform any service checks, it
doesn’t check your servers to ensure they’re running properly; it just
represents whatever data you have put into the data store/s that Grafana is
I also think the concept of “user friendliness” is highly dependent on the
user, so it’s difficult to give an absolute measure of.
