Grafana is an open-source platform for monitoring and observability. Grafana allows you to query, visualize, alert on and understand your metrics no matter where they are stored.

Permissions Problems

If you see the following error:

mkdir: cannot create directory '/var/lib/grafana/plugins': Permission denied, GF_PATHS_DATA='/var/lib/grafana' is not writable.

Run the following command to fix it:

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER ~/.config/appdata/grafana
