Grafana Dashboard, Mimir and Loki on Synology

Hi all,

I’ve seen a few people asking, or at least mentioning, Grafana as a monitoring and logging solution. With that in mind, I spent a few days spinning up a basic Grafana dashboard with Grafana Mimir (metrics) and Grafana Loki (logs) on a Synology NAS as a demonstration of what the Grafana stack could offer. If you want to take a look and try and spin it up, you can find it on my GitHub page. If you don’t have a Synology NAS, you can still run the stack, but obviously the Synology dashboard won’t have any data.

Please keep in mind that this is a demonstration environment and not a fully configured ready to go production deployment. Mimir and Loki are, imho, complicated beasts to set up for full production use. I’m also not a Docker guru, so don’t be surprised if things aren’t perfect on that front. I’m happy to try and help with issues you might have running the stack, and I’m open to pull requests to improve the demo or fix issues etc.
