Grafana Integration Guide

Grafana is an open source analytics and monitoring platform. It allows low level data to be visualized through insightful graphs and dashboards. TaskCall's integration with Grafana allows metric abnormalities identified by Grafana to be sent to on-call responders immediately for the fastest resolution. TaskCall utilizes Grafana's webhook channels to set up the integration.

Pointers
  • The integration is between a TaskCall service and Grafana.
  • This integration only receives alerts in TaskCall from Grafana.
  • TaskCall will automatically identify alerts that are the same and group them together into one incident.
  • Incidents will automatically resolve when the metrics come back within threshold on Grafana.
