Getting Started with Grafana CloudUse an integration

Full stack metrics and logging in minutes

Integrations bundle the Grafana Agent, tailored Grafana dashboards, and sane alerting defaults for common observability targets like Linux hosts, Kubernetes clusters, and Nginx servers. With integrations, you can get a preconfigured Prometheus and Grafana-based observability stack up and running in minutes.

See the Integrations documentation for more details.

Agent Architecture

Get started with integrations:

  • Deploy an integration: Each available Integration uses the preconfigured Grafana Agent with an embedded host data exporter to expose essential metrics. It also creates custom Grafana dashboards for visualizing and alerting on this data. To install this or any available integration, please see the Quickstart .
  • Add an additional integration: To add an integration to an existing set at a later time, repeat the same process as in the Quickstart . If you are adding an integration that was not available when you installed your first one, you must also update your agent to the newest release. Following the instructions given for the new integration will instruct you to install the agent; do so because the agent is often updated to include the ability to interact with newly posted integrations.
