Send VM Metrics directly to Grafana

There's a useful little MIT-licensed plugin which allows Grafana to  
directly query JSON data sources over HTTP(S):

To use, you'd implement the plugin's simple API on the Erlang side.

If for some reason that would fail pen-testing, you could use that code as  
an example of how to implement your own Grafana datasource. But that's  
probably overkill.
