github grafana/agent v0.9.0

This is release v0.9.0 of the Grafana Cloud Agent!

Notable changes:

  • Three new integrations have been added: postgres_exporter, statsd_exporter, and consul_exporter.
  • TLS verification can now be skipped in the Tempo config with insecure_skip_verify
  • Environment variables can now be used in the Agent config file. This feature is disabled by default, pass -config.expand-env to enable it.
  • agentctl now includes a sample-stats command to return samples for series matching a given label selector.

The full list of changes is documented in the CHANGELOG.

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 "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.9.0/production/kubernetes/install.sh)" | kubectl -ndefault apply -f -
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.9.0/production/kubernetes/install-loki.sh)" | kubectl -ndefault apply -f -
/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/grafana/agent/v0.9.0/production/kubernetes/install-tempo.sh)" | kubectl -ndefault apply -f -

Docker container:

docker pull "grafana/agent:v0.9.0"
