    Grafana is NOT a log monitor. It is only a graphing solution for logs and metrics from many different data sources but you will need solutions to get those logs and metrics in the first place.

    It's not a SIEM tool. Rather, it just displays arbitrary data.

    Pretty easy to setup once you figure out the log capture scripts. Then it's very powerful and realiable.
