Just wanted to get some specs for sizing a VM that is only running telegraf. I’ll be hammering on 1600+ nodes via SNMP for a few fields apiece roughly every minute or so, along with ping statistics to all the endpoints and exporting to InfluxDB.
I was thinking 2GB should do it for the VM (RHEL 7) as the process is currently only taking about 200MB of memory from what I see in
top and I have half of the devices in this test instance already. I’m in a memory crunch so the less memory I can get this in at, the better.
