So have been asked to be ready for rebuilding the entire monitoring setup due to a VM issue (multitude SNMP counters so it’s critical! ) collection done via telegraf and data store with InfluxDB.
Please suggest best practices. This is what I’ve listed so far:
- telegraf config files
- InfluxDB config files
- Custom exporters
- Cron job details
- One of the most important I’m concerned with historical data. Referred to this link https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v0.9/administration/backup_and_restore/
Have you guys had any problems in backing and restoring into a new InfluxDB setup.
Any comments appreciated. Thanks
