OCI connection to grafana DataSource



We are monitoring Hitachi & EMC storage through oci.
The customer wants to export the performance data to an excel csv file. But in oci
Can not. So I want to link the data source registered with oci to grafana.
Is there a way to get the oci server db (elasticsearch, mysql) directly into datasource with grafana?


If possible, how do I add it to the datasource?



Re: OCI connection to grafana DataSource

Hi Zoo,


I think this largely depends on grafana's capabilities to pull data in. Unfortunately, myself being more familiar with OCI, I cannot attest to those capabilities.
In any case, OCI comes with an open REST API and you can get data out of OCI with anything that can issue REST calls.

Of course, that might not be strictly necessary in this case, since you definitly can export performance data from OCI directly into a csv file. Ok, from the web-ui it can be a bit tricky, but the reporting portal is particularly well suited for that.
