Grafana dashboard - Ideas

I have finally got my VICTRON-Grafana dashboard running :-)

The devices in use are:
Venus GX
Quattro 48/8000
2x SmartSolar Charger MPPT 150/85 &
BYD Battery & BMS

I am using a Raspberry Pi4 running DietPi, InfluxDB, Telegraph plugin and Grafana Server.

I also installed the following plugins on grafana:

SUN and Moon (data source)


Carpet Plot

It is still work in progress but I am quite happy with outcome so far.
I have created a "Overview" dashboard where basically everything should be "green" - when OK.
So a quick look should tell me that everything is OK.


There are more detailed dashboards for other things like the inverter:


or Battery


or charger - current data & history


I borrowed some ideas from other dashboards and added some of my ideas.

This is just to give you some additional ideas for the layouts

Disconnecting Internet to VRM causes interrupt datatransfer to victrongrafana.

My Cerbo GX is via ethernet connected to VRM and from the same switch I receive data to victrongrafana. When I cut the internet connection to VRM the influxdb stops getting dataafter 16-23 hours after disconnecting the internet. After reconnect the internet VRM and (mostly) inflxdb gets data again. With an installation with a color control I didn't had this problem. May the proplem belongs to the wifi-configuration which I don't need and is different to my color control installation?

I run the victrongrafana installation in docker on a raspberry and also on a QNAP TS-253D without problems combiened with the color control.

My Grafana Dashboard free to use

Hello everybody,

I use Grafana professionally to monitor servers in our data center and servers of our customers.

Since our data center should use 100% photovoltaics, I came to Victron Energy. The test project was the expansion of our mobile home with all the necessary components: battery, MPPT solar charge controller, inverter, shunt and other things.

Victron Energy offers a fantastic interface with VRM. I wanted to see more data and created a Grafana dashboard.

I published this dashboard at Grafana. Everyone is welcome to load the dashboard and see how I set up the displays and how the values are calculated. Maybe you can find some ideas for your own installation.

I am very happy if other ideas are proposed here and I will try to implement them.

reload past data from VRM to local influx db

I use Grafana to display data from my installation. (https://www.zoomsoft.de/grafana)

Sometimes it happens that the connection is lost and the data is not currently transferred to the local database.

Is there a script with which I can reload the data from VRM?

Question regarding grafana - why don’t I see MQTT path options like in the video?


First time working with Grafana and is seems to be going well, however when i want to change a icon on my dashboard i,m unable to see all options. The dude in the victron video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-sGH0etieM&feature=youtu.be does get all options when he types for exampje system.


However if I type system, nothing shows in the lines below.


Any idea why this happens ? Changed browser to test if this was a browser thing...

Tested Chrome, IE and edge,
