How to keep other Besu dashboards running with the Stake Local Dashboard

Besu Dashboard Compatibility

Besu Overview Dashboard - Grafana 10273


This Besu dashboard should work seamlessly with the Stake Local configuration if your prior Besu job_name was besu. besu is the default job_name for the someresat and Coin Cashew guides to installing this Besu dashboard. If you used these guides, you may not need to make any changes.

If your prior Besu job_name was besu-nodes, this dashboard will continue to work, but historical data may show as a different data series under a different color. To avoid this problem, you may update the Nimbus job_name in the new prometheus.yml file to match your prior job_name value. besu-nodes is the default job_name for this Consensys guide.


Edit the /etc/prometheus/prometheus.yml file.

sudo vi /etc/prometheus/prometheus.yml

Find the line containing - job_name: besu.

Change that line to - job_name: <PREVIOUS BESU job_name>.

Replace <PREVIOUS BESU JOB NAME> with the job_name value for Besu in your previous prometheus.yml file. If you used the Consensys guide to setting up your original dashboard, this value may be besu-nodes.

Save the file and exit the editor.
