Grafana Pyroscope

Grafana Pyroscope is an open source software project for aggregating continuous profiling data. Continuous profiling is an observability signal that allows you to understand your workload’s resources usage down to the source code line number. Grafana Pyroscope is fully integrated with Grafana allowing you to correlate with other observability signals, like metrics, logs, and traces.


Grafana Pyroscope is a multi-tenant, continuous profiling aggregation system, aligning its architectural design with Grafana Mimir, Grafana Loki, and Grafana Tempo. This integration enables a cohesive correlation of profiling data with existing metrics, logs, and traces.

Explore continuous profiling data to gain insights into application performance. You can query and analyze production data in a structure way. Use the Pyroscope UI or Grafana to visualize the data.
