Grafana clients

You can use your browser to access your Grafana cluster.


The only plan available so far is Essential.

Here is an overview of the various plans' capabilities:

Plan Number of nodes by default Additional nodes Network
Essential 1 No Public

Your choice of plan affects the number of nodes your cluster can run, the SLA, and a few other features such as private network, read replicas and backup retention.

Nodes and replicas

  • Essential: the cluster is delivered with 1 node.

License type

Grafana software is under the GNU Affero General Public License, a liberal open-source license. More information on

Hardware resources

Here are the node types you can choose from:

Essential plans

Name Disk (GB) Cores Memory (GB)
db1-4 n/a 1 4
db1-7 n/a 2 7



Grafana clusters are reachable through a random port, attributed during cluster creation. Once your cluster is in RUNNING status, the Service URI will display the port to use.

Public networking can be used for all the offers.

For both public and private networks, Ingress and Egress traffic are included in the service plans and unmetered.

Advanced parameters

We do not currently support Grafana advanced parameters.


Essential plan clusters are automatically backed up daily during their backup window. Backup retention is 1 day.

Logs and metrics

Logs and metrics are available via the OVHcloud Public Cloud Control Panel. As of today, you can't export logs and metrics, nor plug them into a remote tool.

  • Logs retention: 1000 lines of logs
  • Metrics retention: 1 calendar month

Please note that if the database instance is deleted, logs and metrics are also automatically deleted.

Users and roles

Creation of users must be done through the Grafana Web interface.

Only one user is created by default and its name is admin. You must reset its password to connect for the first time to the Grafana web interface.
