Step 1 : Login to the EMS by SSH
Step 2 : Get the Grafana installer script
- For version 220.127.116.11 or above, the script is located on the EMS at:
- For any previous version, download the script manually by running:
gsutil cp gs://elastifile-software-repo/scripts/manual_grafana_install.sh /tmp/
Step 3 : Execute the Grafana creation command:
bash /tmp/manual_grafana_install.sh create --admin_password <PASSWORD>
Accessing the Grafana Instance
- The install script will provide the gcloud command to run in order to create SSH tunnel. This is how the command will look like :
gcloud compute ssh --project <PROJECT> --zone <ZONE> --tunnel-through-iap --ssh-flag "-fNL localhost:3000:<GRAFANA_INSTANCE_NAME>:3000" <EMS_INSTANCE_NAME>
Normal SSH tunnel can also be used to access the grafana instance.
After that you can connect via https://localhost:3000
