Distribution Package

Distribution Package is the recommended method of installing grafana-pcp.


$ sudo dnf install grafana-pcp
$ sudo systemctl restart grafana-server

GitHub Release

If there is no package available for your distribution, you can install a release from GitHub. Replace X.Y.Z with the version of grafana-pcp you wish to install.

$ wget
$ sudo unzip -d /var/lib/grafana/plugins
$ sudo systemctl restart grafana-server


You can also run Grafana with grafana-pcp in a container, using podman or docker. Keep in mind that with the default configuration, every container has its own isolated network, and you won’t be able to reach pmproxy through localhost. Replace X.Y.Z with the version of grafana-pcp you wish to install.

$ podman run \
    -e GF_INSTALL_PLUGINS=";performancecopilot-pcp-app" \
    -p 3000:3000 \
$ docker run \
    -e GF_INSTALL_PLUGINS=";performancecopilot-pcp-app" \
    -p 3000:3000 \

From Source

The yarn package manager, Go compiler, jsonnet and jsonnet bundler are required to build grafana-pcp.
