What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
agent, version v0.24.1 (branch: HEAD, revision: 35015aa4)
build user: root@4500bb0cda4b
build date: 2022-04-14T15:27:31Z
go version: go1.17.6
What are you trying to achieve?
Connect machine behind firewall to push metrics to Grafana Cloud
How are you trying to achieve it?
Run the agent configured on the local machine
It can’t connect to the internet because its requires a web proxy
Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
Trying to follow (Grafana Agent | Grafana Cloud documentation) to install agent.
The agent config for metrics (see metrics_config | Grafana Agent documentation) does not have a proxy_url option like Promtail does (see grafana .com/docs/loki/latest/clients/promtail/configuration/#clients_)
There are no command line options that allow me to configure a proxy.
It looks like go should support the environment variable
https_proxy and use that transparently. But that hasn’t worked either.
