Where are the links for Prometheus and Grafana in Rancher v2.x Cluster and Project Monitoring?

This document (000020157) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.



Using Rancher v2.x, from v2.2.4 and above, you can monitor the state and processes of your cluster nodes, Kubernetes components, and software deployments through the use of the built-in Rancher cluster and project monitoring. Rancher monitoring deploys the open-source Grafana and Prometheus projects, and this article details how to access the UI for these components, so you can view the monitoring dashboards and query metrics.

Cluster level

To access the Grafana UI for Rancher cluster monitoring, from the main dashboard for your cluster, click the three-dot option menu in the top-right and click the button "Go to Grafana".

You should also see Grafana logos next to the system components on the main dashboard for your cluster. Click on any of them to take you to the Grafana dashboard for that particular component.
