PostgreSQL Integration for Grafana Cloud
PostgreSQL is a free and open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) emphasizing extensibility and SQL compliance. This integration enables the agent to send metrics to Grafana Cloud along with a useful default dashboard for visualization.
Use the walkthrough in Grafana Cloud to install the PostgreSQL Integration.
Post-install configuration for the PostgreSQL Integration
Make sure to change the
data_source_names to the addresses of the Postgres servers you want to monitor in the agent config:
integrations: postgres_exporter: enabled: true data_source_names: - "postgresql://linus:42secret@localhost:5432/postgres?sslmode=disable"
The example above assumes the database name is
postgres, the user
linus and the password
For a full description of configuration options, see
