I was going to install influxDB for our needs (few thousands of clients, tonns of metrics) with telegraf, influx-relay and Grafana.
Had a lot of experience with TICK stack.
I have not heard about InfluxDB2 and I had a huge frustration.
Could you please answer on some points and maybe provide a good alternative?
- No config files - everything via arguments to cli daemon and UI
- No environment variables supported
- No service for systemd/init (not a problem, but take a look at point 2 - that’s a problem!)
- Everything in one file! Really? What about unix way? What’s the terrible solution? I need just TSDB, that’s all!
I understand that this is alpha only and we shouldn’t use it in production, but will this adrressed in the future? Can’t find this in the roadmap.
I really dunno - should we use TICK and wait for influx2.0 as just TSDB or don’t waste time and take a look to another solution.
