It's not a problem to run the containers but to get the data in Grafana. I am already a few days busy to get this working with no success. These are the containers you have to run:

So, I don’t want to mention a competitor but it appears one has implemented integrating this into their service. Requires some setup but it appears they are working on automating it too. PM me if you want the link for some research. Hopefully this can be implemented with PG too.

The Varken folks have also created a dashboard template for grafana too. Simplifies setup a little more.

Awesome. Then we just need to figure out how to install it (grafana, influxdb) and then the ini file :)

Have it working on a vm with another plex system. Maybe this system can be analysed to look how this can be implemented in PG.
