Update grafana metrics when updating to cardano-node 1.25.1

Cardano's [CAFE] and [CAFE2] are updated to newest version 1.25.1. For all stake pool operators (SPOs) it is important to know that with release of 1.25.1 the mainnet-config.json in the repository of CF / IOHK was consolidated and is a lot slimmer than previous! Some names of statistic variables have changed. In most cases the wording "ChainDB_" was removed. So be sure to update your grafana dashboard so that you can still enjoy your statistics after update to 1.25.1.
