I have enabled promtail in our ec2 instances via Ec2 service discovery now the question is how to check the status of agent is it running or not and forwarding logs to loki?, Is there a promtail ui to check the scrape config and status? is so can you guide me with the steps

or something similar to prometheus ui.
