HBase as a grafana backend datasource

Afternoon all. is there any way to use hbase as a grafana backend datasource? (eg: not for monitoring, but to graph the data that’s housed in hbase)

There is none, AFAIR,

The closest would be datasource for metric OpenTSDB, which uses HBase as backend, but that’s another story

Or you would have to write your own datasource (or adatper from grafana to hbase query)

Another option would be to have a predefined queries to hbase exported periodically to anohter data source, for example spak job to estract data as metrics to elasticsearch or prometheus or even generic SQL

In my situation i would have ways to extract the data from the database and drop it elsewhere. i hate storing it twice though. that is a little wasteful
