ZigBee@Linux: Getting Data from ZigBee Devices via MQTT to InfluxDB and Grafana

Getting sensors with zigbee integrated with my linux raspberry pi, i did some monitoring tasks on my raspberry pi.

  1. Monitoring my raspberry pi:
    There is a very nice tutorial:
    https://medium.com/@andreea.sonda31/monitor-raspberry-pi-resources-and-parameters-with-grafana-board-part-1-ab0567303e8
    Or even better: Just use this from grafana:
    https://grafana.com/grafana/dashboards/10578
    1. add deb https://packages.grafana.com/oss/deb stable main to a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
    2. apt install grafana telegraf influxdb
    3. configure telegraf for your influxdb
    4. import the json from the grafana.com-link above



  2. Monitoring my Fritz.Box with Grafana:
    https://grafana.com/grafana/dashboards/713 
    and follow the given tutorial https://fetzerch.github.io/2014/08/23/fritzcollectd/
After these steps i have the following infrastructures running:
  1. zigbee2mqtt --> MQTT -->FHEM


  2. Fritz.box --> collectd --> InfluxDB --> Grafana

  3. raspberry --> telegraf --> InfluxDB --> Grafana


For  2 and 3 it is very easy to create graphics and the presentation looks little bit prettier than 1 (imho). 

AND there is only one frontend to configure. So what about the following chain for my zigbee sensors:

  1. zigbee2mqtt --> MQTT -->telegraf --> InfluxDB --> Grafana 

Looks like some more steps, but the telegraf --> InfluxDB --> Grafana chain is already there for monitoring my raspberry pi.

So i only had to add the following on /etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf:

[[inputs.mqtt_consumer]]
   servers = ["tcp://127.0.0.1:1883"]
   topics = [
     "zigbee2mqtt/0x00158d000542239e",
     "zigbee2mqtt/0x00158d00044a6378",
     "zigbee2mqtt/0x00158d0003f0faad",
     "zigbee2mqtt/0x00158d00044a72a2",
   data_format = "json"

And after that i was able to use the data in Grafana:
