Grafana is a wonderful tool to display time series ans a lot of different metrics
The project is in a very active development state , and new features are added constantly.

The version 5 is particularly desirable since a new layout engine for the dashboard has been developed, and is quite powerfull !

The service should automaticly restart when the update is done , but check that it is running with :
