As of Grafana 8.0 Pie chart panel is included with Grafana. Please refer to the Pie chart panel documentation for more information.


Use the new grafana-cli tool to install piechart-panel from the commandline:

grafana-cli plugins install grafana-piechart-panel

The plugin will be installed into your Grafana plugins directory; the default is /var/lib/grafana/plugins if you installed the Grafana package.

More instructions on the Grafana CLI tool can be found in Grafana CLI.

You must have Grafana 4.6.5 or newer installed to run this plugin. You can get it here:

Alternative installation methods

Download latest zip

wget -nv -O /tmp/

Extract and move into place

unzip -q /tmp/ -d /tmp
mv /tmp/grafana-piechart-panel-* /var/lib/grafana/plugins/grafana-piechart-panel
sudo service grafana-server restart

Git clone

You can clone this repo directly into your plugins directory.

Afterwards restart grafana-server and the plugin should be automatically detected and used.

git clone --branch release-1.6.2
sudo service grafana-server restart

Clone into a directory of your choice

If the plugin is cloned to a directory that is not the default plugins directory, then you need to edit your grafana.ini config file (default location is at /etc/grafana/grafana.ini) and add this:

path = /home/your/clone/dir/piechart-panel

Note that if you clone it into the Grafana plugins directory, then you do not need to add the above config option. That is only if you want to place the plugin in a directory outside the standard plugins directory. Make sure that grafana-server has read access to the directory.
