About OCI Metrics plugin for Grafana

Introduction

This plugin makes queries to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure(OCI) Monitoring Service to fetch metrics for your OCI resources or your custom metrics in OCI. And then displays them on Grafana.

If you are running Grafana on a machine instance in Oracle Cloud, use the Instance Principal with a configured Dynamic Group and policy to allow you to read metrics and compartments.

If you are running Grafana anywhere else, make sure you have ~/.oci configured properly. You can do this by installing the Oracle Cloud CLI and running the setup.

Latest plugin version 3.X.X(available on Grafana Marketplace) is compatible with Grafana 8**. We will release it's binary on its Github repo very soon.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Metrics plugin is datasource with backend type of plugin Grafana. Hereafter referred to as OCI Metrics plugin.
