Might be a little off-topic, but some general advice, please.
I want to monitor some 60 servers. I want to put infulxdb (collecting from collectd) on each server, rather than having one central instance.
resilient - if it goes down, then only stats from that server are lost.
predictable - being a TSD, it’s easier to know exactly how big the DB will grow for each machine (a minor point, I know)
Performance: only queries and results go across the wire, rather than data (this might even be more data), although 60 machines could generate a lot of traffic?
Multiple datasources in grafana
Any advice, please - I instinctively dislike my solution - it feels “wrong”, but I’m growing to like it.
