    Yes I'm aware that Grafana is open source but the method I used to find the API endpoints is far quicker than digging through hundreds of files in a codebase I'm not familiar with.

    So, you will add one last container to allow us to visualize this data: Grafana, an open-source analytics and visualization platform that allows us to see traces and metrics simply. You can set Grafana to read data from both Tempo and Prometheus by setting them as datastores with the following grafana.datasource.yaml config file:

    I completely agree but do feel it needs qualifying. The problems beginners run into aren't usually the same as the problems experienced devs run into when adopting a language new to them, but where I see the two overlap I know something is a serious hazard in a language.

    Java as a first language: won't like the boilerplate but won't have any point of comparison anyway, will get a few NPEs, might use threads and get data races but won't experience memory unsafety.

    Go as a first language: much less boilerplate, but will still get nil panics, will be encouraged to use goroutines because every tutorial shows off how "easy" they are, will get data races with full blown memory unsafety immediately.

    Rust as a first language: `None` // no examples found

    I think Go as a beginner language would be better if people were discouraged from using goroutines instead of actively encouraged (the myth of "CSP solves everything"), otherwise I think it needs much better tooling to save people from walking off a cliff with their goroutines. And no, -race clearly isn't it, especially not for a beginner.

    And in one respect I've found Go more of a hazard for experienced devs than beginners: the function signature of append() gives you the intuition of a functional programming append that never modifies the original slice. This has literally resulted in CVEs[1] even by experienced devs, especially combined with goroutines. Beginners won't have an intuition for this and will hopefully check the documentation instead of assuming.

    I build the Tasmota firmware for the S31's nightly, and expose the Prometheus endpoint so I can also monitor the current used by these devices in real time with the data pushed to Grafana. I have ~30 of them in my home/homelab, and servers, appliances, sump pump, fans, etc. are all monitored by my S31 fleet.

    In most cases, applications use the combination of Prometheus + Grafana, which allows collect data and display it in the form of graphs and also to set up alerts for changes in any metrics.

    Let's search for one of the most commonly used charts in DevOps which is Grafana. Grafana is an interactive data visualization platform that provides charts that are put into dashboards from which insights from complex infrastructure can be analyzed. You can also query and set alerts based on the set criteria for metrics on the supported integrated data sources with grafana. Searching grafana helm chart via the terminal can be done with the following command.
