Complete!

[root@grafanaoci ~]#

Now Install dependent libraries.

[root@grafanaoci ~]# yum install fontconfig -y
[root@grafanaoci ~]# yum install freetype* -y
[root@grafanaoci ~]# yum install urw-fonts -y

After the installation, we need to reload the systemd manager configuration before starting the Grafana service.

Run the following systemctl command.

[root@grafanaoci ~]# service grafana-server start
Starting grafana-server (via systemctl):
                                                           [  OK  ]

[root@grafanaoci ~]# /sbin/chkconfig --add grafana-server

[root@grafanaoci ~]# systemctl enable grafana-server.service
Created symlink from /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/grafana-server.service to /usr/lib/systemd/system/grafana-server.service.

[root@grafanaoci ~]#

Next, start Grafana and then enable it to run automatically everytime the system boots up.

[root@grafanaoci ~]# systemctl start grafana-server

[root@grafanaoci ~]# systemctl enable grafana-server

[root@grafanaoci ~]# systemctl status grafana-server

[root@grafanaoci ~]#

Grafana is running on port 3000, So we need open the port in firewall.

[root@grafanaoci ~]# firewall-cmd --add-port=3000/tcp --permanent
success

[root@grafanaoci ~]# firewall-cmd --reload
success

Grafana installation on server has been successful. Now we can open  Grafana console in web-browser.

URL http://<Public IP>:3000

Note: In OCI Instance, we need to set Ingress rule for 3000 port to get Public IP accessible.

Log in to the Grafana Dashboard using default user ‘admin’ and password ‘admin’.

In next post, we can install Oracle Infrastucture OCI plugin and monitor the OCI environment from Grafana.
