Backup and Restore Chronograf Dashboards

Chronograf is a web-based GUI for visualizing time-series data, typically from a time-series database such as InfluxDB. I have been using it recently to store load-test measurements created by the MuseIDE Measurements extension.

I have been running it in the cloud, starting up a fresh instance whenever I have the need for storing load test results. This is handy and very cost-effective, but starting from scratch means that I need to set up dashboards of the metrics I want to see every time.

Chronograf is a visualization tool for time-series databases – very handy for visualizing and analyzing load test measurements.

To make use of InfluxDB and Chronograf to store load test measurements from tests built with MuseIDE, we needed to get the … Continue reading »

Announcing the Graphite extension for MuseIDE

To complement our Measurements and Parallel extensions, the Graphite extension sends measurements to a Graphite-compatible listener (Carbon, InfluxDB, etc). This allows, for example, viewing load test measurements live in a compatible UI, such as Graphite, Grafana or Chronograf.

You will also need a Periodic Measurement Collector plugin running, which was added in the Measurement extension 0.2 release. The periodic collector gathers the measurements and sends them to the Graphite plugin. It has a … Continue reading »
