Installing Grafana is quite easy. All you have to do:

Once MSI is downloaded, run installer & follow the instructions
Once install is complete, open URL: http://localhost:3000
Default user/PWD is admin/admin. First-time users need to reset the password.
Once you login, go to link Add Datasource from any of the marked locations:
From the list, select TimeSeries Database InfluxDB:
In the opened window, add sample database which we imported in InfluxDB in last post
In next steps, create dashboard & add graph to view data available in the database.
