Integrating Bitmovin Analytics with Grafana

InstallationLink Icon

To install the Bitmovin Grafana plugin, so you can use the Bitmovin Analytics service as a data source in your Grafana dashboard, you can either look up the plugin at https://grafana.com/plugins, or you install it using the following grafan-cli command on your grafana deployment:

1grafana-cli plugins install bitmovin-analytics

If you don't yet have a Grafana setup, please visit https://grafana.com/get for further instructions.


HINT: As our plugin is currently being reviewed by the Grafana team to become available via the grafana plugin repository, you would have to install it manually at the moment using the following command on your grafana deployment:

1grafana-cli --pluginUrl https://github.com/bitmovin/analytics-grafana-datasource/archive/master.zip plugins install bitmovin-analytics

Then, restart your grafana deployment, using service grafana-server restart, or if you are using docker, restart the container using docker restart YOUR_GRAFANA_CONTAINER_NAME.


ConfigurationLink Icon

Once the plugin got installed successfully, you can add Bitmovin Analytics as a new Data Source to your deployment. Go to your Data Source Configuration overview at https://your-grafana-domain.com:3000/datasources/new (Configuration => Data Sources => Add new Data Source)

  1. Select "Bitmovin Analytics" as Data Source Type

Usage ExamplesLink Icon

Graph View

Add a new graph to your dashboard and select Bitmovin Analytics as a Data Source. Then you will be presented with an editor to build your analytics query for your Bitmovin Analytics account, which result will be used for the view. The editor works the same way as our Bitmovin Analytics API Explorer which is available in our ydashboard at https://bitmovin.com/dashboard/analytics/data.

Other Graph types

As Grafana is capable to render multiple data sets in one graph, you can easily combine the results of two analtyics queries as well,

or simply list view them as a table, e.g. to get a quick overview about the top browser usages.
