Grafana is an open-source software that transforms multiple feeds from systems such as Graphite, Telegraf, and InfluxDB into beautiful metrics in a centralized dashboard.
This tutorial will cover the process of installing the Grafana web interface.
Grafana can be installed via
apt using the following commands:
$ wget https://grafanarel.s3.amazonaws.com/builds/grafana_4.1.1-1484211277_amd64.deb $ apt-get install -y adduser libfontconfig $ dpkg -i grafana_4.1.1-1484211277_amd64.deb
Use the following commands to start Grafana and add set it to auto-start on system boot:
$ systemctl daemon-reload $ systemctl start grafana-server $ systemctl status grafana-server
The Grafana daemon listens to port
3000. In order to visit the Grafana Dashboard, point your browser to
http://192.168.0.1:3000 (replace this IP with your actual server IP), and use the default login credentials below:
Username: admin Password: admin
Note: Please make sure to change the default Grafana password to prevent unauthorized access to the dashboard.
This concludes out tutorial. Thank you for reading.
