I want to install Grafana on my HDF cluster - is this possible through ambari? I want to connect Grafana to my HDP cluster which runs elasticsearch that indexes data from a hbase table.
I do not plan to use Grafana to visualise managed services but to visualise customer data stored in HDP.
any thoughts or guidance much appreciated.
My other question was if I install grafana (http://docs.grafana.org/installation/debian/) on a node in my HDF cluster will it effect Ambari Metrics (which also uses an instance of Grafana) ?
Grafana comes from ambari repository so you can simply install the AMS in your HDF cluster using Ambari UI.
Ambari UI --> Add Services --> Ambari Metrics Service.
Along with AMS service the Grafana will be automatically installed.

>>> Once grafana is installed then you can login to the Grafana UI and then you can add a new DataSource base don your requirement.
