Upgrade to InfluxDB 1.7.6, Grafana 5.4.4 and Mosquitto 1.6.1

Dear community,

we just upgraded InfluxDB from 1.7.3 to 1.7.6 [1] (which will also give us Flux 0.24.0), Grafana from 5.4.3 to 5.4.4 [2] and Mosquitto from 1.5.x to 1.6.1 [3] all over the place. From the backend and data acquisition perspective, everything went smoothly. However, some dashboards already using Flux-Expressions are currently experiencing some teething problems.

We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause for you.

With kind regards,
the people of Hiveeyes.

Please also recognize the background of this patch release for Grafana, which you might also want to apply to your systems.

Just a quick note. All the packages referenced above are also available from our package repository hosted on packages.hiveeyes.org for easy installation on your own premises.

While there’s a little document about how to install and configure the data acquisition platform already, there is definitively room for improvement. However, people have been able to make it through. Contributions are welcome.
