Seemingly some enterprise monitoring solutions look that they can be suitable for your infrastructure but afterwards it shows up that your expectations are not satisfied. There are a lot of online monitoring tools that are just a waste of money. Rather than investing your budget, I would prefer choosing Grafana which is a multi-platform open source monitoring tool. Grafana provides a lot of complex monitoring dashboards depending on the connected data sources. Let’s jump and see how to install it on Debian 11.


  • Debian 11
  • sudo privileges

Install Grafana on Debian 11

Step 1. Update system packages and install some Grafana requirements.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y apt-transport-https
sudo apt-get install -y software-properties-common wget

Step 2. Add Grafana’s GPG key.

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Step 3. For stable releases add the following repo:

echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list

Step 4. Grab latest changes and install Grafana.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grafana

Step 5. To verify installation and Grafana version, run:

grafana-cli -v
grafana-server -v


Grafana CLI version 8.2.3
Version 8.2.3 (commit: fb85ed6912, branch: HEAD)
