This article is about monitoring some IoT devices (e.g. a CO2 sensor) with a combination of Mosquitto (a MQTT broker), Telegraf (a metric collector), InfluxDB (a time-series database) and Grafana (for displaying everything nicely). All mentioned services should run on a server that can be reached from the monitoring device(s) and your PC where you want to check the data. We will use MASH (see below) to deploy the services.

I had some IoT devices that I wanted to integrate in my monitoring. For this I set up a MQTT broker as the MQTT protocol is a simple solution to send data from IoT devices to a server. This tutorial is focusing on setting up the server, but I also introduce a Python based MQTT client to test our installation. On your server, first install mosquitto, our MQTT server/broker. sudo apt-get install mosquitto Allow standard mqtt port in firewall (if you have ufw installed)
