High CPU Usage after grafana-server deamon starts


I freshly installed Grafana and I’m noticing that after booting the grafana-server process uses 100% of one CPU core, even when I’m not accessing the interface and without any database hooked up to it. The CPU usage doesn’t go down over time and the only way to have it not hog my CPU is to restart the grafana-server service (service grafana-server restart).

More details:
OS: Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) armv7l
Grafana: Version 4.3.2 (commit: ed4d170)

Default (stock) configuration, followed the instructions in the Grafana documentation (Installing on Debian/Ubuntu).

Since I’m running this on a single board computer (ODroid U3) I’m using the unofficial armhf .deb package available on this github repo. I can imagine that maybe this platform isn’t supported by Grafana, nonetheless, it would be great if I could get some help to figure out why I’m getting this behavior and how to fix it.


we have no experience running Grafana on this platform or with this build, maybe reach out to the guy providing the package: https://github.com/fg2it/grafana-on-raspberry

I’ll try that.

I tried looking at the log file in /var/log/grafana but it is empty. Is there any way I can turn up the logging level to get more details as the grafana-server process starts/runs?

Thanks again!

You can change mode (file, console, syslog) and logging levels in the ini file:
