Add SLA reporting from the Icinga IDO database into your Grafana dashboards 🙂

@icinga a very simple status dashboard based on Grafana using IDO as a data source. Thanks @grafana for the awesome MySQL datasource plugin. We'll do some more development before releasing it on

In case you ever wondered how a fully high available #monitoring architecture could look like. #icinga #influxdb #grafana #nagvis #haproxy #galera
Don't blame the architect if it looks confusing XD
