Install Grafana

Install Grafana on our instance which queries our Prometheus server.

sudo apt-get install -y adduser libfontconfig
sudo dpkg -i grafana_8.1.4_amd64.deb

Enable the automatic start of Grafana by systemd:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload && sudo systemctl enable grafana-server && sudo systemctl start grafana-server

Grafana is running now, and we can connect to it at http://your.server.ip:3000. The default user and password is admin / admin.

Now you have to create a Prometheus data source: - Click the Grafana logo to open the sidebar. - Click โ€œData Sourcesโ€ in the sidebar. - Choose โ€œAdd Newโ€. - Select โ€œPrometheusโ€ as the data source. - Set the Prometheus server URL (in our case: http://localhost:9090/) - Click โ€œAddโ€ to test the connection and to save the new data source.
