Description: The Grafana Odometer Plugin is a visualization tool designed to display counters in the form of an odometer. It adds a dynamic and engaging element to your Grafana dashboards, making your data come alive as the numbers change in a manner similar to how digits move in a physical meter.

Features: This plugin offers two distinct types of animations:

  1. Odometer Animation: With the Odometer animation, your numbers will move gracefully, just like the digits in a traditional mechanical meter. This style of animation brings a touch of elegance and nostalgia to your data visualization.

  2. Counter Animation: The Counter animation, on the other hand, simulates the way numbers change in a digital meter. It offers a modern and sleek representation, making your data feel contemporary and cutting-edge.

Installation: To install this Grafana Odometer Plugin, follow these steps:

  1. Download the plugin zip file from [].
  2. Extract the contents to your Grafana plugins directory, which is typically located at 'data/plugins' or '/var/lib/grafana/plugins' on a Unix-based system.
  3. Restart your Grafana server to activate the plugin.


  1. After installation, you can add the Odometer visualization to your Grafana dashboard.

  2. Create or edit a panel and select the Odometer visualization from the list of available visualizations.

  3. Configure the panel settings, including data sources and queries, to display your desired metrics.
