InfluxDB taking up huge amount of space quickly

Hi,

using InfluxDB with Telegraf on unRAID inside a docker

Monitoring two servers using the excellent guide provided on

However, the InfluxDB is growing upwards of 400GB in only a couple of days, and i have no idea how to create a new retention policy inside unRAID via the docker - so i’ve had to turn it off

Anyone have any clues why its doing it? I have a pastebin of my Telegraf.conf file below if this helps?

many thanks

My instinct is that it is caused by the docker input collecting way more than desired, could you run telegraf --test and upload the output to pastebin?
