I know there is the NR Dashboard available but to date I have been experimenting with Grafana. I'm not completely happy with the way data is visualized and thought perhaps I should step back and see if others are using either of these options (or even a 3rd method I haven't considered) and have opinions on pros and cons. If there is already a post discussing this, please point me in that direction (search found nothing related to "visualization" outside of the dashboard sub.
I'm primarily recording sensor data right now (weather, power usage, other temperatures). I was envisioning having some running line graphs for current conditions and perhaps some bar charts for things like monthly rainfall etc. I have been unsuccessful in getting Grafana to use different time ranges for each plot, so my test dashboard looks unattractive and doesn't contain the data I want.
I tried running through a demo of the NR Dashboard and failed so I went to Grafana on day 1. Do users think one is a better interface than the other for sensor type data? I'm not looking to set up controls, so I'm not sure the NR approach is necessary. But, If it's overall a better option, I'm early in the learning of all of these tools so it would be beneficial to focus on a option with a higher success outcome.
