Is there a clean way of adding plugins to the included Grafana? I would rather just keep one instance of it running if possible. Another option would be how to install istio plugin in a separate grafana instance.
I think the most workable approach here is to import the Istio dashboards into a separate grafana instance. Recently, we’ve updated our release process to publish those dashboards as part of a release to the grafana dashboards site. I believe they can be found via: https://grafana.com/grafana/dashboards?dataSource=prometheus&search=Istio.
The add-on installs are really meant more for demo/trial purposes. Supporting a full range of customization of those installs is beyond the scope of Istio.
thanks a lot. Yes that’s just what I was looking for. I would rather not have grafana managed by istio.
