Grafana / InfluxDB can be rather intimidating for starters…
Beyond charting simple battery levels, temperatures, brightness levels and so on, I wanted to chart how much energy certain devices use in daily operation. I think I managed to find a way to do this, but I’m unsure if I’ve done it correctly.
Could someone who has some experience with Grafana / InfluxDB tell me if it’s the right way?
Yes you really took your time
On the X-axis is the time. On the Y-axis is the amount of used energy.
So if you are using the amount is ‘growing’ over time that is why you have a line going up. That’s all nothing more.
Well it could be growing by any amount. Roughly, the units seem to match, but e.g. I found out the divisor 3600 by sharp looking. Somehow I’m a bit confident, it’s right since an hour has 3600 seconds. But I lack the knowledge on InfluxDB/Grafana to judge what’s going on internally…
