I have come across influxdb today in my search for a time series database.
I have managed to import csv files containing performance metrics from the storage arrays (hosts, virtualization, switches, etc will follow) using telegraf, but now I feel stuck.
The only reason for doing this (I can generate graphics many other ways also) is data correlation. For start, I want to group LUNs into groups. A LUN is allocated to a server and the server is part of a “server type group”.
- LUN1 and LUN2 are allocated to ServerA, Linux server
- LUN3, 4 and 5 are allocated to ServerB, Linux server
- Both ServerA and ServerB are part of a Docker cluster
I want to be able to see the metrics of all the LUNs allocated to servers in the Docker cluster or to Linux servers, etc.
Can this be achieved? And if yes, how? Any feedback is appreciated!
