What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
Grafana version 9.1.0
What are you trying to achieve?
I would like to use the remote_write option, or some other way to do it, so that I can set up a prometheus source that is running locally at my house, on a grafana instance that is running on my free oracle cloud server, so that I can view the grafana dashboard from anywhere without having to port foward.
How are you trying to achieve it?
I got everything working on grafana cloud, but I would like to self host grafana instead so I don’t have to deal with the 14 day retention. I could not find any information on how to do this, except for port fowarding the port that prometheus uses, which I cannot do.
I could not find anything online about how to do this.
What did you expect to happen?
Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?
Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.
Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
If you can put your local Prometheus behind a public DNS, you can remote write data from Oracle Prometheus to Local Prometheus.
That “remote_write” is Mimir (“better Prometheus”) = deploy&configure Mimir on your server - Grafana Mimir | Grafana Labs
Thank you! so if I understand, I just install mimir on to oracle and then I can use remote_write?
