OpenNMS Helm and Grafana 6

#1

A few months back I installed OpenNMS Helm 2, and then manually upgraded Grafana to 5.4.3 from the Grafana yum repository.

due to issue HELM-131 I can’t yet upgrade to Helm 3, so I have versionlocked OpenNMS-Helm to v2, to prevent it being upgraded inadvertently.

I tried doing a “yum update” to get the latest OS patches, and yum found Grafana 6 has been released. However, this caused the yum update to fail as Helm-2 has a dependency on Grafana being less than v6. Now that’s not a serious issue as I can versionlock Grafana to 5.4.3 to allow the OS patching to occur. But I was just wondering how long it might take for a major version update to Grafana to be certified for OpenNMS Helm? Grafana 6 has some features that I’m interested in.

Regards,
John

I don’t know an estimated timeline, however while they were working on HELM-131, a compatibility issue with Grafana 6 was encountered, and the Grafana team wants that fixed before approving an update to the plugin repository. So my best guess to your question would be not long.

I wanted to give you a heads up that I saw HELM-131 was closed today and slated for the 3.0.1 release. I don’t have an ETA on when that will be published, but will be coming.
