Grafana Sqlyze Data source

A Grafana data source plugin that connects to hundreds of datasources using one language: SQL. Connect to your favorite SQL databases, NoSQL databases, and many other non-SQL sources...and query them with SQL.

This plugin is not yet supported in Grafana Cloud.

The data source uses ODBC

This plugin has a dependency on ODBC. Windows/Linux/MacOS all support ODBC. Some dependencies may need to be installed.

Using ODBC with Linux ARM or MacOS

Install or make sure unixODBC is installed

This plugin requires an ODBC driver. ODBC Drivers are available through 3rd parties. See below for a list.

Time series

To format your queries for time series, simply use the alias: as time

select date_start as time, foo, avg(bar) as bar
from foo_bar
