How to configure Service Graphs with Grafana Tempo without having a metrics backend?

Hi team,

I wanted to know if it is possible to get service graphs in Grafana with Tempo as data source ? I checked this document and it mentions the use of prometheus, but is it possible to configure service graphs without having Prometheus configured ?

Thank you for the help !

At the moment you do have to have a backend that supports both Prometheus remote write and PromQL.

Remote Write:


We do intend to eventually support metrics from traces directly in Tempo, but that work is likely a ways off. Perhaps service graphs could be queried directly from Tempo at that time.
