Grafana Labs, creators of the Grafana open-source metrics analytics & visualization suite, has announced the release of Grafana 10 alongside the start of celebrations for the open source project's 10-year anniversary, including the annual GrafanaCON community conference.
Grafana offers a robust time-series database. It was created as a fork of Elastic's Kibana (ElasticSearch’s analytics and visualization platform) to add support for monitoring metrics that was lacking at that point in Kibana.
The aims of Grafana 10 are to make data visualization easier and more powerful, with more help to get new users started and to help them set up database connections and create visualizations. This release also comes with a number of more advanced additions, and improvements in user authorization and resource organization.
For more experienced users, there's a new correlations feature that extends the existing data links feature to link from any data source to any other data source so users can jump from one data source to another in visualizations.
A new Scenes front-end library has also been added to let developers create apps that mirror Grafana dashboards, with template variable support, flexible layouts, and dynamic panel rendering.
Support has also been added for creating subfolders in Grafana for organizing your dashboards and alerts by business units, departments, and teams.
Grafana 10 also comes with an updated Canvas panel that has the ability to draw connections between elements, set the color and size of connections based on data, and add data links.
A Trends panel has also been added that can be used to display trends where the x-axis is numeric and not time; and a new Datagrid panel adds the ability to edit your data within a Grafana dashboard. Alongside the datagrid, Grafana 10 adds the ability to drag and drop spreadsheets into Grafana for analysis.
You can also set up permissions using Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), with cascading folder permissions. The expanded RBAC system and streamlined SAML authentication setup aim to offer a more secure way to work with both on-prem and cloud-hosted data sources.
Grafana 10 is available now.
