Installation:

Grafana Cloud Agent is currently distributed in plain binary form, Docker
container images, 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).

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.7.0/production/kubernetes/install.sh)" | kubectl -ndefault apply -f -
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.7.0/production/kubernetes/install-loki.sh)" | kubectl -ndefault apply -f -
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.7.0/production/kubernetes/install-tempo.sh)" | kubectl -ndefault apply -f -

Docker container:

docker pull "grafana/agent:v0.7.0"
