Deploy Tempo with Tempo Operator

The Tempo Operator allows you to configure, install, upgrade, and operate Grafana Tempo on Kubernetes and OpenShift clusters.

Some of the operator features are:

  • Resource Limits - Specify overall resource requests and limits in the TempoStack CR; the operator assigns fractions of it to each component
  • AuthN and AuthZ - Supports OpenID Control (OIDC) and role-based access control (RBAC)
  • Multitenancy - Multiple tenants can send traces to the same Tempo cluster
  • mTLS - Communication between the Tempo components can be secured via mTLS
  • Jaeger UI - Traces can be visualized in Jaeger UI and exposed via Ingress or OpenShift Route
  • Observability - The operator and TempoStack operands expose telemetry (metrics, traces) and integrate with Prometheus ServiceMonitors

The source of the Tempo Operator can be found at grafana/tempo-operator.
