Kapacitor metrics in influx

kapacitor

Hi,

are there any kapacitor metrics store in influxdb?
Would it make sense in order to monitor the performance of kapacitor?

Yes, Kapacitor will emit metrics into a stream with database and retention policy of _kapacitor.autogen by default.

Then you can decide what to do with the metrics, but typically you can send them to InfluxDB via a simple task:

stream
    |from()
        .database('_kapacitor')
        .retentionPolicy('autogen')
    |influxDBOut()

See the [stats] config section for changing things like the interval etc.
