monitoring: Status Panel breaks with Grafana 6.7.0 (maybe 7.x too)
The Grafana dashboards included in the Ceph distribution depend on two third-party plug-ins that need to be installed, "vonage-status-panel" and "grafana-piechart-panel".
The former package seems to be no longer maintained and has stopped working since version 6.7.0:
A fix has been proposed, but has not been merged yet (likely because the project has been abandoned):
This status panel is used on one Grafana dashboard "ceph-cluster.json" that displays the overall Ceph cluster status, similar to the "landing page" that is built into Ceph Dashboard.
This particular Grafana dashboard is not embedded into Ceph Dashboard, so this breakage is not immediately obvious when Grafana is accessed via Ceph Dashboard exclusively.
A quick fix might be to just pin the version deployed by cephadm to 6.7.2.
Alternatively, ceph-cluster.json should be updated to no longer depend on this plugin.
