github grafana/agent v0.16.1

This is release v0.16.1 of the Grafana Agent. If you are using v0.16.0, this release is strongly recommended.

Upgrading

Read the migration guide for specific instructions on upgrading from older versions.

Notable changes:

This release contains a bug fix for v0.16.0 where if the WALs were reloaded, there was a high chance of metrics being sent with the wrong labels, making the values appear incorrect.

The v0.16.0 release was pulled from Github to prevent people from running into this. The full v0.16.0 changelog, which includes a Grafana Agent Operator, can be found here.

Installation:

Grafana Agent is currently distributed in plain binary form, Docker container images, a Windows installer, and a Kubernetes install script. Choose whichever fits your use-case best.

Kubernetes Install Script

The following scripts will download and install two Kubernetes manifests for the Agent. The first manifest collects metrics, the second collects logs, and the final collects traces. You will be prompted for input for each manifest. The script requires curl and envsubst (GNU gettext).

NAMESPACE="default" /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.16.1/production/kubernetes/install.sh)" | kubectl apply -f -
NAMESPACE="default" /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.16.1/production/kubernetes/install-loki.sh)" | kubectl apply -f -
NAMESPACE="default" /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.16.1/production/kubernetes/install-tempo.sh)" | kubectl apply -f -
