My name is José Manuel and I amtrying to put work a server with grafana and locki and agents promtail to monitoring logfiles but I am a littlebit confuse, grafana is installed, OK, loki is a mystery to me, I have installed loki but how i know that it is running? I mean I use systemctl status grafana-server and it show the status , running, stopped etc but with loki?
Promtail, I supose that install in the machine to monutoring and configure it but … Can anybody tellme a global vision step by step to make this? Because the docs about that are a little confue to me .

Thanks a lot everuone.
