Monitoring InfluxDB Using Telegraf

Tracy Boggiano continues her performance metrics series by showing how to monitor the monitoring solution:

We need to generate a special config file for the Linux machine to capture the CPU and disk metrics. This config file will be in your /etc/telegraf folder.

After you run this you will need to open it with your favorite editor, mine is vim:

Once the file the is open you can type the letter i to be able to edit the file. Then type /influxdb to find the outputs.influxdb section of the file and edit the same sections we edited for Windows. Type /inputs.outfluxdb to jump down and edit the InFluxdb section. After you have finished editing the file in vim you can type Esc then :wq! and the hit Enter for it save the config file.
