Useful dashboards don’t happen by accident. To make the most of your Prometheus data, you need to know how to design them with a purpose and the user in mind. In this course, Building Dashboards from Prometheus Data in Grafana, you’ll learn to create dashboards that generate value from raw data. First, you’ll explore how to connect Grafana to Prometheus and build simple panels. Next, you’ll discover how to leverage human perception and observability strategies. Finally, you’ll learn how to move beyond manual creation of dashboards, through sharing, importing, and automation. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of dashboard design needed to create highly valuable visualizations.

Course Overview
Hello. My name is Chris Green, and welcome to my course, Building Dashboards from Prometheus Data in Grafana. I think producing useful dashboards from data is one of the most worthwhile outcomes from a well‑structured monitoring system. Grafana has become the de facto dashboarding software for monitoring data, especially with Prometheus as the back end. Grafana offers a much richer environment compared to the built‑in Prometheus graphing engine. If you want to make good visual use of your monitoring data, then Grafana is the tool for the job. This course is part of the learning path, Event Monitoring and Alerting with Prometheus. Before starting, you should be very familiar with Prometheus and writing your own PromQL queries. You're going to learn to use your Prometheus data in Grafana through modules that cover how to access Prometheus data, design principles for dashboards, and managing an automation of dashboards. By the end of this course, you will be confident in producing dashboards that are useful and add value to your monitoring stack. From here, you can begin to mature the use of dashboards within your organization and move further towards data‑driven decision making. I hope you'll join me to learn how to build dashboards from your Prometheus data, here on Pluralsight.
