You have multiple ways to query k6 results in Grafana. Having test results in a dashboard brings various benefits:
- Visualize your results to analyze performance during the test run or over multiple test runs.
- Correlate test results with application and system metrics in the same dashboard to get a holistic overview of your system's performance and quickly find the root causes of performance issues.
With Grafana, you can create a custom dashboard to query and visualize data from multiple sources and any type of backend. With k6, you can stream your test results to any backend using a custom output extension or an existing real-time output.
The flexibility and interoperability of Grafana and k6 let you join test and observability data in one dashboard, independently of where the data is stored.
