Grafana logs giving incorrect information about a plugin that has been removed successfully

We have a hive data source plugin that has been removed from the grafana installation and the server has been restarted successfully and I could validate the plugin not listed/displayed from the plugins menu in grafana UI. However, as i was looking into the grafana server logs /var/log/grafana/grafana.log I do notice the following error message listed continuously.

lvl=eror msg=“Could not find plugin definition for data source: grafana-hive-datasource”

could any help me to know what could be the reason for seeing this error in the logs even though the plugin has been removed successfully.
Thank you


The plugin probably still exist in the database table plugin_setting. Delete the row corresponding to your deleted plugin and the log message should disappear.
