Grafana Dashboard for Apache Cassandra

We appreciate Sarma Pydipally for taking the time to create a presentation and sharing his knowledge of the Grafana Dashboard and how it can be used with Apache Cassandra.

Grafana Dashboard

Grafana Dashboards is an open-source data and analytics visualization tool. Some key features of Grafana include visualization, queries, alerts, and metrics exploration. It allows users to take data from their time-series databases (TSDBs) and create graphs and visualizations.


Prometheus is an open-source monitoring system. It records and tracks real-time metrics in a time series database. Prometheus supports flexible queries using PromQL and supports real-time alerting. It collects data through a pull model. The Prometheus server queries various data sources from a list at a set frequency and updates the current values based on these queries.


Apache Cassandra is a highly available and highly scalable, open-source, distributed NoSQL database. Cassandra features proven fault-tolerance on hardware or in the cloud.
