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).
