Does Grafana server + influxDB + ChirpStack Gateway OS full runs on same Raspberry pi that RAK2245 mounted gateway? As you know latest raspberry pi 4 have 8gb ram. I will only monitor about 20-30 nodes. Do I need to use docker or should I install packages directly on raspian OS ? Will sdcard wear out, if I boot OS from sdcard but install services on HDD and run from there ?


  • I know Grafana + Influx run fine even on older Pi boards but what the load would be with the LoraWan I expect depends more on the amount of data you are collecting rather than the number of nodes. Maybe sending an email to info@rakwireless.com could get you better data than folk here due to the specialist nature of the software stack you are looking at?

  • I haven't heard about a RPi 4B with 8GB RAM before. I only know about 1GB, 2GB and 4GB. Please give a link, where I can purchase one with 8GB RAM.
