Grafana supports many different storage backends for time series data but PI Data Archive is not one of them.
If you are looking for visualization options with the PI System you should use PI Vision (previously named PI Coresight) to trend, chart and perform ad hoc analysis on PI System data.
Customization in PI Vision are available through extensiblility .

One of my colleagues recently came across Grafana, and showed me a demo of it with PI data. There is a PI Web API datasource plugin for Grafana.
This was a nice find, John. I went to Grafana's web site yesterday and tried searching on "OSIsoft", "OSI", and later just "PI". Got zero hits.

Hi Bill. I have tested the Plugin and it works fine in both Grafana architecture (local or SaaS) and the result is pretty interesting.
I would love to have some of their features in PI Vision such as:
- event frame in trends
- alarming highlighting the trend or the object
- the discrete panel showing the status of a tag over a period
Here below my dashboards all connected to PI AF and Event Frames (sorry for the colors, I did not focus on that) :
