Monitor the pollution on your commute

Commuting through the urban sprawl of a 21st century city brings exposure to significant quantities of pollution. For a Medway Makers member that meant the Isle of Dogs, London, and a drive through the Blackwall Tunnel under the Thames. When you can taste the pollution in the air it’s evident that this isn’t the best environment to be in, but just how bad is it? Time to put together an environmental monitoring and recording rig

Create your own LoRaWAN Mapper with Node-Red, InfluxDB and Grafana

This tutorial will guide you through the necessary steps. To be honest this does not even reach the solution from JP Meijers, but if you want to get hands on to use Node-Red, InfluxDB and Grafana for dashboarding this might be interesting for you.

Monitoring Kafka in Kubernetes

This post focuses on monitoring your Kafka deployment in Kubernetes if you can’t or won’t use Prometheus. Kafka exposes its metrics through JMX. To be able to collect metrics in your favourite reporting backend (e.g. InfluxDB or Graphite) you need a way to query metrics using the JMX protocol and transport them. This is where jmxtrans comes in handy. With a few small tweaks it turns out it’s pretty effective to run this as a sidecar in your Kafka pods, have it query for metrics and transport them into your reporting backend. For the impatient: all sample code is available here.

Migrating InfluxDB databases to docker-compose

I got a brand new Intel NUC which I’m planning to use as a server with Docker. Some weeks earlier I had set up InfluxDB on a Raspberry Pi Zero W to collects my Home Assistant data and monitor my machines with Telegraf.

Timeseries Databases Part 2: Writing Data to InfluxDB from .NET

InfluxDB is a database written specifically for handling time series data. The influxdata website writes on InfluxDB…

Node-Red, InfluxDB, and Grafana Tutorial on a Raspberry Pi

Grafana, InfluxDB, and Node-Red on a Raspberry Pi form a dream team for visualization of IOT data. The setup is not easy, but this is what we will do together.

Open Source Historian: Grafana & InfluxDB

Demonstrates how to setup an open source historian to view process data using easy to install docker images. Shows how Modbus TCP data is inserted with NodeRED and how a WAGO PFC can log data using simple the curl http POST api.

Spring boot metrics monitoring using TICK stack

Worth nothing to mention that monitoring the performance and availability of applications is very important. This is one of the many cool features bundled with Spring boot, which since its first days comes with production ready features (i.e Actuator) to help us keeping an eye on apps performance. With the release of spring boot 2, Actuator got a huge boost, offering dev/ops more application metrics facade that supports numerous monitoring systems.

Grafana, InfluxDB und Windows PowerShell – Teil 4

Nachdem wir nun die Basis zur Speicherung von Daten geschaffen haben, können wir nun mit dem Einspielen von Daten beginnen. Da ich im ersten Schritt die Verteilung der Windows-Client-Versionen im WSUS auslesen möchte, brauche ich natürlich ein Windows-System. Ob es ein Server oder ein Client-OS ist zählt erstmal nicht. Wichtig ist nur, dass der Client bzw. Server recht aktuell ist. Ich beginne mit meinem Windows 10 zum Test der Verbindung.

Grafana, InfluxDB und Windows PowerShell – Teil 5

Nachdem wir nun die Datenbank, Grafana und das benötigte PowerShell Modul laufen haben, können wir nun mit dem Bau des ersten Dashboards beginnen. Wir haben ja im letzten Teil ein oder mehrere Werte in die InfluxDB gepumpt, mit denen wir nun testweise eine Anzeige erstellen können.
