This March, we continued February’s theme of focusing on the core building blocks of the Grafana LGTM Stack (Loki for logs, Grafana for visualization, Tempo for traces, Mimir for metrics). This included webinars on how to get started with Grafana, how to integrate yet another plugin (Google Cloud Monitoring), and how to scale Prometheus metrics.
Here’s a look at the on-demand sessions you may have missed in March — and the upcoming webinars you can register for right now.
Getting started with the Grafana LGTM Stack
If you checked out our webinars in January and February on reducing both your resolution time (MTTR) and observability total cost of ownership (TCO), then it’s finally time to dive into the Grafana LGTM Stack this March.
In this session, Grafana Labs Solutions Engineer Eli Bonadies walked us through the Grafana LGTM Stack and ran a couple of demos highlighting many of its features. This included how to add panels and run queries using disparate data sources to visualize everything in one dashboard for a true single-pane-of-glass view.
Scaling and securing your Prometheus metrics in Grafana
For many users, the next natural step after getting started in Grafana is to scale the data they have. In this webinar, Senior Solutions Engineer Colin Wood walked through how to scale your Prometheus metrics using Grafana Enterprise Metrics (GEM). With a focus on security and role-based access control (RBAC), Colin demonstrated how to create tenants, teams, access policies, and tokens for managing multi-tenancy.
Visualizing Google Cloud with Grafana
Using plugins in Grafana is a great way to connect your external data sources in order to further elevate your single-pane-of-glass view. This month, we took another deep dive into the Google Cloud Monitoring (formerly Stackdriver) OSS plugin. Software Engineer Adam Simpson dove right into a real-time demo of how to add the Google Cloud Monitoring plugin (included with Grafana Cloud) so you can easily start visualizing your Google Cloud data.
