grafana / telegraf / influxdb
Custom telegraf plugins
See https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf to learn about plugins.
Telegraf will save in the
telegraf database from the embedded influxdb server.
You'll have to add yourself the influxdb data source in grafana, using the parameters published by the slapos instance.
When adding datasource, use proxy option, otherwise Grafana makes your browser query influxdb directly, which also uses a self signed certificate. One workaround is to configure your browser to also accept influxdb certificate before using grafana, but using proxy seems easier.
Influxdb backups are not done automatically by this software release.
One important thing to notice is that the backup protocol is enabled on ipv4 provided by slapos, so make sure this ip is not reachable from untrusted sources.
- influxdb and telegraf runs with very low priority, this could become an option
- make one partition for each service and use switch software type
- make it easier to add custom configuration (how ?)
