We’ve updated the TICK Sandbox with some new functionality and an additional tutorial!
The TICK Sandbox is the fastest way to get started with the entire TICK Stack by bringing up each component in Docker, simulating a production InfluxData installation running on separate machines without the management complexity.
To try out the sandbox, you’ll need
git installed. Atlassian has some great guides for getting up and running with git on various platforms, and Docker provides desktop applications for macOS and Windows and install instructions for various Linux distributions.
This update includes:
- Windows support
- The latest version of all components in the TICK Stack
- A tutorial on using Telegraf with the socket_listener plugin
- A change to the
./sandbox docker-cleancommand so that it only removes containers created by the sandbox script
