You can use the Helm chart for Grafana Agent to deploy Grafana Agent in static mode on Kubernetes.

  • Configure your local Kubernetes context to point to the cluster.

Deploy

Note

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

To deploy Grafana Agent in static mode 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. Install Grafana Agent in static mode:

    shell
    helm install <RELEASE_NAME> grafana/grafana-agent --set agent.mode=static

    Replace the following:

    • <RELEASE_NAME>: The name to use for your Grafana Agent installation, such as grafana-agent.

    Warning

    Always pass --set agent.mode=static in helm install or helm upgrade commands to ensure Grafana Agent gets installed in static mode. Alternatively, set agent.mode to static in your values.yaml file.

For more information on the Grafana Agent Helm chart, refer to the Helm chart documentation on Artifact Hub.
