Best practices / examples for monitoring influxdb server

#1

Does anyone have some recommendations or examples on how to manage influxdb severs with the _internal DB or telegraf?

We are using Grafana (for now) for monitoring various inputs including collectd, but want to better know how we can manage our influxdb servers.

I found this discussion: https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb/issues/5045 but there was not a lot of practical details.

@sgreszcz We have a some canned dashboards for Chronograf with some queries that might be helpful for you:

These queries are designed to be run on the data coming out of the telegraf [[inputs.influxdb]] plugin. Much of that same data exists in the _internal database. Does this help?
