Multi-container Docker app with InfluxDB, Chronograf, and Grafana
Multi-container Docker app built from the following services:
To start the app:
docker-compose up -d
To stop the app:
The services in the app run on the following ports:
| Host Port | Service | | - | - | | 3000 | Grafana | | 8086 | InfluxDB | | 127.0.0.1:8888 | Chronograf |
Note that Chronograf does not support username/password authentication. Anyone who can connect to the service has full admin access. Consequently, the service is not publically exposed and can only be access via the loopback interface on the same machine that runs docker.
If docker is running on a remote machine that supports SSH, use the following command to setup an SSH tunnel to securely access Chronograf by forwarding port 8888 on the remote machine to port 8888 on the local machine:
ssh [options] @ -L 8888:localhost:8888 -N
The app creates the following named volumes (one for each service) so data is not lost when the app is stopped:
The app creates two admin users - one for InfluxDB and one for Grafana. By default, the username and password of both accounts is
admin. To override the default credentials, set the following environment variables before starting the app:
The app creates a default InfluxDB database called
The app creates a Grafana data source called
InfluxDBthat's connected to the default IndfluxDB database (e.g.
To provision additional data sources, see the Grafana documentation and add a config file to
./grafana-provisioning/datasources/before starting the app.
By default, the app does not create any Grafana dashboards. An example dashboard that's configured to work with artillery-plugin-influxdb is located at
./grafana-provisioning/dashboards/artillery.json.example. To use this dashboard, rename it to
To provision additional dashboards, see the Grafana documentation and add a config file to
./grafana-provisioning/dashboards/before starting the app.
