I successfully setup InfluxDB 2.0 with Telegraf inside a docker-compose and it’s working perfectly fine.
I already added a new Telegraf plugin inputs.temp, which is also working.
Now i’m kinda stuck with the inputs.nvidia_smi plugin.
My first error was, that the binary could not be found so I added it as volumes:
telegraf: image: telegraf container_name: telegraf ports: - 8080:8080 - 8094:8094/udp volumes: - ./telegraf.conf:/etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf - /usr/bin/nvidia-smi
But now im stuck at a permission denied exception.
2020-11-18T13:51:50Z E! [inputs.nvidia_smi] Error in plugin: fork/exec /usr/bin/nvidia-smi: permission denied
I already tried to add 777 permissions to the file.
nvidia-smi is working outside the docker and for testing I added and nvsmi docker, which also works:
nvsmi: image: ubuntu:20.04 runtime: nvidia environment: - NVIDIA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=all command: nvidia-smi
There are some open bug reports about this, but nothing which seems to be resolved. (and honestly I don’t think this is a bug)
What would be a proper way to call nvidia-smi , if i can’t mount it like that ?
Thanks in advance
