[clug] Grafana and Prometheus on PPC

I have a Raptor Systems Blackbird POWER9 desktop computer idling away
next to me. It has 16 cores and 32GB of RAM and thinks it's pretty good ( I
disagree sometimes).

I have managed to get Grafana (Graphical Dashboards) and Prometheus (Time
Series database aka Stats Scraper) running on this Power9 Fedora
workstation. It's trickier than on x86 but not super hard.

I can hit localhost:9090 and localhost:9100 in a browser and see the raw
stats in Prometheus.

In a browser, the localhost:3000 for the 'Node Exporter Full ' Grafana
dashboard, displays a dashboard, but with no stats from prometheus.

My inexperience with Grafana and Prometheus is shining through here. Any
advice from experienced persons will be very much appreciated.
