Grafana Cloud Enterprise Open source

Configure the Grafana Pyroscope data source

To configure basic settings for the data source, complete the following steps:

  1. Click Connections in the left-side menu.

  2. Under Your connections, click Data sources.

  3. Enter Grafana Pyroscope in the search bar.

  4. Click Grafana Pyroscope to display the Settings tab of the data source.

  5. Set the data source’s basic configuration options:

    NameA name to specify the data source in panels, queries, and Explore.
    DefaultThe default data source will be pre-selected for new panels.
    URLThe URL of the Grafana Pyroscope instance, for example, http://localhost:4100.
    Basic AuthEnable basic authentication to the data source.
    UserUser name for basic authentication.
    PasswordPassword for basic authentication.
    Minimal stepUsed for queries returning timeseries data. The Pyroscope backend, similar to Prometheus, scrapes profiles at certain intervals. To prevent querying at smaller interval, use Minimal step same or higher than your Pyroscope scrape interval. This prevents returning too many data points to the frontend.
