Grafana Enterprise Traces Set up a GET cluster

Set up a Grafana Enterprise Traces cluster

Grafana Enterprise Traces (GET) is available as a pre-compiled binary, a Docker image, and as common OS-specific packaging. For a list of available download options, refer to Downloads.

Note: You can use Grafana Cloud to avoid installing, maintaining, and scaling your own instance of GET. The free forever plan includes 50GB of free traces. Create an account to get started.

Get a GET license

A valid Grafana Enterprise Traces license token is required to run GET’s many added features. GET will run with the functionality of an open-source Tempo binary when no license token is available.

To get a license, please contact a Grafana Labs representative.

Choose a name for your GET cluster

GET licenses are issued on a per-cluster basis. Each cluster of GET that you plan to deploy requires a unique license. When requesting a GET license, you’ll be asked to provide a unique cluster name with which to associate the license.

A cluster name must meet the following criteria:

  • is 3 to 63 characters long
  • contains lowercase letters, numbers, underscores (_), or hyphens (-)
  • begins with a letter or number
  • ends with a letter or number

Download your GET license

Your GET license can be downloaded as follows:

  1. From, select Login.
  2. From the left-hand menu, select Licenses to download the license token.

Deploy your GET cluster

After you have a Grafana GET license with an associated cluster name, choose a method to deploy your GET cluster:
