Welcome to our guide on how to Install Grafana on Fedora 35/34/33/32/31. Grafana is the leading open source feature-rich metrics dashboard and graph editor for Graphite, Elasticsearch, OpenTSDB, Prometheus, and InfluxDB. Grafana provides charts, graphs, and alerts for the web when connected to supported data sources.

This tutorial will guide you through the installation of Grafana on Fedora 35/34/33/32/31.

For CentOS / Ubuntu, use:

Install Grafana on Fedora 35/34/33/32/31

Grafana is available from the upstream YUM repository though you can also install it from an RPM package.

Step 1: Add Grafana yum repository:

Run the following commands to add Grafana YUM repository into your Fedora system.

cat <

Step 2: Install Grafana on Fedora 35/34/33/32/31

The install Grafana on Fedora by running:

sudo dnf -y install grafana

To start grafana service and enable it to start on boot, run:

sudo systemctl start grafana-server
sudo systemctl enable grafana-server

Confirm service state:

$ systemctl status grafana-server
● grafana-server.service - Grafana instance
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/grafana-server.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (running) since Wed 2018-11-21 20:38:08 UTC; 30s ago
 Main PID: 12041 (grafana-server)
    Tasks: 8 (limit: 1149)
   Memory: 12.5M
   CGroup: /system.slice/grafana-server.service
           └─12041 /usr/sbin/grafana-server --config=/etc/grafana/grafana.ini --pidfile=/var/run/grafana/>

This will start the grafana-server process as the grafana user, which is created during package installation.

The default HTTP port is 3000. By default Grafana will log to /var/log/grafana.

The default configuration  file is /etc/grafana/ with sqlite3 database store located at /var/lib/grafana/grafana.db

Open firewall port for Grafana

If you have a running firewalld service, allow port 3000 to access the dashboard from the network.

sudo firewall-cmd --add-port=3000/tcp --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --reload

You can access the Grafana web interface on the URL:

http://[Server IP|Hostname]:3000

The default logins are:

username: admin
Password: admin


Don’t forget to change the admin password after the first login.
