Utilizing the Terminal on the IoT Edge computer, would it be possible to install InfluxDB and Grafana from the command line?
I heard there was potential for an upgraded IoT Edge computer, curious what upgrades are being done.
Would I need to use something like a Raspberry Pi to achieve something like this?
The Processor inside the IoT Edge Computer is an Omega Onion 2S+. It is a very small low cost Linux SoIC. Running InfuxDB would probably be a bit much for it. It works great to run an older version of Node-Red reliably, but capabilities beyond that are a bit limited. We are developing the predecessor to the IoT Edge Computer now and hope to release it later this year.
In the mean time if you have experience with Pi that would be a good alternative. You can simply connect a USB modem to the Pi to receive wireless signals from the sensors and ingest the data similarly to the IoT Edge Computer.
Please let me know if you have any questions on this.
