Needs advice
on
PrometheusPrometheusGraphiteGraphite
and
GrafanaGrafana

Looking for a tool which can be used for mainly dashboard purposes, but here are the main requirements:

  • Must be able to get custom data from AS400,
  • Able to display automation test results,
  • System monitoring / Nginx API,
  • Able to get data from 3rd parties DB.

Grafana is almost solving all the problems, except AS400 and no database to get automation test results.

You can look out for Prometheus Instrumentation (https://prometheus.io/docs/practices/instrumentation/) Client Library available in various languages https://prometheus.io/docs/instrumenting/clientlibs/ to create the custom metric you need for AS4000 and then Grafana can query the newly instrumented metric to show on the dashboard.

        What is Graphite?

        Graphite does two things: 1) Store numeric time-series data and 2) Render graphs of this data on demand

        What is StatsD?

        It is a network daemon that runs on the Node.js platform and listens for statistics, like counters and timers, sent over UDP or TCP and sends aggregates to one or more pluggable backend services (e.g., Graphite).

        What is Statsite?

        Statsite is a metrics aggregation server. Statsite is based heavily on Etsy's StatsD https://github.com/etsy/statsd, and is wire compatible.
