Deploy Grafana Agent Flow on Kubernetes

You can use a Helm chart to deploy Grafana Agent Flow on Kubernetes.

Note

These instructions show you how to install using a generic Helm chart for Grafana Agent Flow. You can deploy Grafana Agent either in static mode or flow mode. The Helm chart deploys Grafana Agent Flow by default.

Before you begin

  • Install Helm on your computer.
  • Configure a Kubernetes cluster that you can use for Grafana Agent Flow.
  • Configure your local Kubernetes context to point to the cluster.

Deploy

To deploy Grafana Agent on Kubernetes using Helm, run the following commands in a terminal window:

  1. Add the Grafana Helm chart repository:

    shell
    helm repo add grafana https://grafana.github.io/helm-charts
  2. Update the Grafana Helm chart repository:

    shell
    helm repo update
  3. Create a namespace for Grafana Agent Flow:

    shell
    kubectl create namespace <NAMESPACE>

    Replace the following:

    • <NAMESPACE>: The namespace to use for your Grafana Agent Flow installation, such as agent.
  4. Install Grafana Agent:

    shell
    helm install --namespace <NAMESPACE> <RELEASE_NAME> grafana/grafana-agent

    Replace the following:

    • <NAMESPACE>: The namespace created in the previous step.
    • <RELEASE_NAME>: The name to use for your Grafana Agent installation, such as grafana-agent-flow.
  5. Verify that the Grafana Agent Flow pods are running:

    shell
    kubectl get pods --namespace <NAMESPACE>

    Replace the following:

    • <NAMESPACE>: The namespace used in the previous step.

You have successfully deployed Grafana Agent Flow on Kubernetes, using default Helm settings. To configure Grafana Agent Flow, see the Configure Grafana Agent Flow on Kubernetes guide.
