Trickster Grafana dashboard

I made this dashboard as tool to benchmark and test Trickster delta cache for time-series databases. It should speed-up loading of your frequently viewed dashboards.

This dashboard should give you good idea about how is Trickster effective in caching, it’s utilization and possibility to observe possible impacts on time-series databases behind it (currently only Prometheus).


This dashboard uses those metric sources:

Every graph should have description tooltip on the upper left cornet if you hover over it.




To identify Trickster and Prometheus metrics dashboard needs you to specify label and it’s value identifying their metrics. Those variables are:

Values can be regex matchers such as prometheus.*


There are three ways to install this dashboard

  1. Copy the JSON definition of dashboard and paste it in the Import dialog in Grafana
  2. Download the JSON definition and using the Upload .json file dialog
  3. Load the dashboard directly form website using dashboard ID 5756 or on link

Sadly I don’t use exact version in production due to some architectonic reasons and optimizations for my own setup but it’s very much the same.

But i will try to sometimes update this dashboard if I make some major changes.

I’ll be happy to add any reasonable feature you would appreciate so don’t hesitate to create issue or PR directly.

Please if you make a PR add also screenshot of your change for easier CR. Thank’s!


Thank’s goes to guys from Comcast who open-sourced the Trickster! Great work and thanks :)
