Configure Grafana Agent
Your intermediate agent, Grafana Agent stores exemplars by default. You can also use hosted Prometheus as your intermediate agent, but we recommend using Grafana Agent for a user-friendly workflow.
To configure Grafana Agent to send traces to Grafana Cloud:
- Confirm that exemplars are being scraped by the Agent by verifying that the
prometheus_remote_storage_exemplars_totalmetric is a non-zero value.
- Add the option “send_exemplars: true” under the
remote_writeconfiguration block to forward those exemplars from the Agent to Grafana Cloud.
