Gitea integration for Grafana Cloud
Gitea is an open-source forge software package for hosting software development version control using Git as well as other collaborative features like bug tracking, wikis and code review.
This integration provides the dashboard with metrics exposed by Gitea, including application’s key stats as well as CPU, memory, file descriptors utilization.
This integration includes 1 pre-built dashboard to help monitor and visualize Gitea metrics.
Before you begin
In order for the integration to work, on Gitea instance you need to configure metrics section to enable /metrics endpoint:
In order to see issues stats grouped by repositores and labels, Gitea 1.16.0 or above is required with the following flags set:
[metrics] ENABLED=true ENABLED_ISSUE_BY_REPOSITORY=true ENABLED_ISSUE_BY_LABEL=true
Install Gitea integration for Grafana Cloud
- In your Grafana Cloud stack, click Connections in the left-hand menu.
- Find Gitea and click its tile to open the integration.
- Review the prerequisites in the Configuration Details tab and set up Grafana Agent to send Gitea metrics to your Grafana Cloud instance.
- Click Install to add this integration’s pre-built dashboard to your Grafana Cloud instance, and you can start monitoring your Gitea setup.
Post-install configuration for the Gitea integration
After enabling the metrics generation, instruct Grafana Agent to scrape your Gitea nodes.
Gitea exposes a
/metrics endpoint. To scrape it, add the snippet above to your agent configuration file.
Make sure to change
targets in the snippet according to your environment.
Configuration snippets for Grafana Agent
metrics.configs.scrape_configs, insert the following lines and change the URLs according to your environment:
- job_name: integrations/gitea relabel_configs: - replacement: '<your-instance-name>' target_label: instance static_configs: - targets: ['localhost:3000']
Full example configuration for Grafana Agent
Refer to the following Grafana Agent configuration for a complete example that contains all the snippets used for the Gitea integration. This example also includes metrics that are sent to monitor your Grafana Agent instance.

The Gitea integration installs the following dashboards in your Grafana Cloud instance to help monitor your system.
- Gitea Overview
The most important metrics provided by the Gitea integration, which are used on the pre-built dashboard, are as follows:
# 0.0.4 - September 2023 * New Filter Metrics option for configuring the Grafana Agent, which saves on metrics cost by dropping any metric not used by this integration. Beware that anything custom built using metrics that are not on the snippet will stop working. * New hostname relabel option, which applies the instance name you write on the text box to the Grafana Agent configuration snippets, making it easier and less error prone to configure this mandatory label. # 0.0.3 - September 2022 * Update dashboard panels descriptions. # 0.0.2 - January 2022 * Update mixin to latest version: - fix dashboard templates to use `$datasource` variable - allow multiselect for job # 0.0.1 - December 2021 * Initial release
By connecting your Gitea instance to Grafana Cloud, you might incur charges. To view information on the number of active series that your Grafana Cloud account uses for metrics included in each Cloud tier, see Active series and dpm usage and Cloud tier pricing.
