Data Monitoring and Visualization Services and Tools

On This Page

Overview

There are various tools that allow you to monitor and query your data and produce graphical interactive representations that make it easy to quickly analyze the data and begin discovering new actionable insights in a matter of seconds, with no programming effort.

Grafana

The Grafana open-source platform for data analytics, monitoring, and visualization is pre-integrated in the platform and available as a user application service.

Note
In cloud platform environments, Grafana is currently available as a shared single-instance tenant-wide service.

In addition, there's a predefined single-instance tenant-wide Grafana service for IT administrators, which has dashboards with monitoring data at the application-cluster level.

All Grafana services in the platform have predefined dashboards that leverage the platform's monitoring service to display monitoring data, such as performance statistics, for application services. For more information, see Monitoring Platform Services.

You can use the Grafana service to define custom Grafana dashboards for monitoring, visualizing, and understanding data stored in the platform, such as time-series metrics and NoSQL data. This can be done by using the custom iguazio data source, or by using a Prometheus data source for running Prometheus queries on platform TSDB tables. You can also issue data alerts and create, explore, and share dashboards. For more information, see Adding Grafana Dashboards.

See also the Grafana restrictions in the Software Specifications and Restrictions documentation.

Remote Visualization Tools

All leading BI data visualization tools can be installed remotely and configured to run on top of the data services of the Iguazio Data Science Platform over a Java database connectivity (JBDC) connector. The following images display data visualization using the popular Tableau, QlikView, and Looker visualization tools:
