Logs Panel Logs Panel

Description

We will look at the logs panel, but we will first need to setup a data source that can read log files.

We will use the Loki Data Source with the Promtail client as the collector on the Grafana Server itself.

And then I will demonstrate using the Log Panel, and linking it with graphs using Annotation Queries.

  1. Install Loki Binary and Start as a Service
  2. Install Promtail Binary and Start as a Service
  3. Configure Loki Data Source and Explore
  4. Create a Dashboard with a Graph and Log panel, and link them with Annotations
