Install Grafana
Install Grafana on our instance which queries our Prometheus server.
wget https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/grafana-releases/release/grafana_8.1.4_amd64.deb
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 “Data Sources” in the sidebar. - Choose “Add New”. - Select “Prometheus” as the data source. - Set the Prometheus server URL (in our case: http://localhost:9090/) - Click “Add” to test the connection and to save the new data source.
