Grafana dashboard for Influx DB


To create the image akolosov/grafana, execute the following command on the akolosov-docker-grafana folder:

docker build -t akolosov/grafana .

To run the image and bind the port:

docker run -d -p 80:80 akolosov/grafana

The first time that you run your container, a new user admin will be created for HTTP basic auth with a random password. To get the password, check the logs of the container by running:

docker logs <CONTAINER_ID>

You will see an output like the following:

 You can now connect to Grafana with the following credential:



In this case, ilNfrVn68r1N is the password allocated to the admin user.

You can now login you to Grafana in your browser:

Setting a specific password for Basic HTTP Authentication

You can specify username and password for HTTP Basic Auth of akolosov/grafana:

HTTP_USER=admin                 Username for HTTP auth, using admin by default
HTTP_PASS=**Random**        Password for HTTP auth. Change it, otherwise system will generate a random password.

If you want to user a preset password instead of a random generated one, you can set the environment variable HTTP_PASS to you specific password when running the container:

docker run -d -p 80:80 -e HTTP_USER=admin -e HTTP_PASS=mypass akolosov/grafana

You can now test it:

Configure the connection to InfluxDB

akolosov/grafana needs to know the information of your InfluxDB for configuration. Please provide the following environment variables when running your Grafana container:

INFLUXDB_PROTO=http                 Protocol of your InfluxDB
INFLUXDB_HOST=**ChangeMe**          Host of your InfluxDB (without protocol)
INFLUXDB_PORT=8086                  Port number of your InfluxDB
INFLUXDB_NAME=**ChangeMe**          Database name of your InfluxDB
INFLUXDB_USER=root                  Username of your InfluxDB
INFLUXDB_PASS=root                  Password of your InfluxDB

Here is an example:

docker run -d -p 80:80 -e -e INFLUXDB_PORT=8086 -e INFLUXDB_NAME=testdb -e INFLUXDB_USER=root -e INFLUXDB_PASS=root akolosov/grafana

Configure InfluxDB to save and load dashboards

If you want to use InfluxDB for saving dashboards, you need to pass an extra
environment variable: INFLUXDB_IS_GRAFANADB which defaults to false.

Here is an example:

docker run -d -p 80:80 \
  -e \
  -e INFLUXDB_PORT=8086 \
  -e INFLUXDB_NAME=testdb \
  -e INFLUXDB_USER=root \
  -e INFLUXDB_PASS=root \
