In this article, we will discuss how to set up Grafana on an Ubuntu server using Gcore Cloud. We will use a preconfigured Grafana server instance from our Marketplace. The main advantage of this approach is that it saves you time and effort: you get a ready-to-use Grafana server in ten to fifteen minutes. You simply need to create an instance and connect to Grafana through your web browser, then you’ll be able to create dashboards. No manual manipulations are required in the command line.
Grafana is an open-source platform for data visualization and monitoring. It allows you to create customizable and interactive dashboards, alerts, and panels. For example, you can take data from different cloud services and visualize it all in a single Grafana dashboard.
First, let’s create a virtual machine with a Grafana server.
By default, Grafana runs on port 3000. To access the Grafana dashboard, open a web browser and enter the URL of your Grafana server:
When presented with the above log in screen, enter the following credentials:
Now you’ve successfully accessed the Grafana dashboard, you can start creating custom dashboards to monitor your data. To create a dashboard, click on the + icon on the left side navigation menu and select Dashboard.
You can then add panels to your dashboard by clicking on the + icon on the top right corner of the screen.
Choose the type of panel you want to add and configure it to display the data you need.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully set up Grafana on your Ubuntu server.
