This topic shows how you can configure Grafana with Privacera.

Privacera allows you to use Grafana as a metric and monitoring system. Grafana dashboards are pre-built in Privcera for services such as Dataserver, PolicySync and Usersync to monitor the health of the services. Grafana uses the time-series data from the Privacera services and turns them into graphs and visualizations.

Grafana uses Graphite's query to pull the time-series data and create charts and graphs based on this data.

Supported Services

The following services are supported on Grafana:

  • Dataserver
  • PolicySync
  • Usersync


  1. To enable Grafana, run the following command. This will enable both Grafana and Graphite.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager/
    cp config/sample-vars/vars.grafana.yml config/custom-vars/
  2. Run the update.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager/


After configuring Grafana, if the data does not appear on the dashboard, see Unable to See Metrics on Grafana Dashboard.
