Abstract Common EPICS visualization tools include standalone Graphical User Interface [*] or archiving applications [**] that are not suitable to create custom web dashboards from IOC published PVs. The solution proposed in this work is a data publishing architecture based on three open-source components: - Collectd: a very popular data collection daemon with a specialized plugin developed to fetch EPICS PVs; - InfluxDB: a Time Series DataBase (TSDB) that provides an high performance datastore written specifically for time series data; - Grafana: a web application for time series analytics and visualization able to query data from different datasources. A live demo will be provided showing flexibility and user friendliness of such developed solution. As a case study, we show the environment developed and deployed in the Belle2 experiment at KEK Laboratory (Tsukuba, Japan) to monitor data from the endcap calorimeter during the installation phase.
