You can export statistics to an
InfluxDB server (time series server).
The connection should be defined in the Glances configuration file as
[influxdb] host=localhost port=8086 protocol=http user=root password=root db=glances # Tags will be added for all measurements #tags=foo:bar,spam:eggs # You can also use dynamic values #tags=system:`uname -s`
and run Glances with:
$ glances --export influxdb
Glances generates a lot of columns, e.g., if you have many running
Docker containers, so you should use the
tsm1 engine in the InfluxDB
configuration file (no limit on columns number).
Note: if you want to use SSL, please set ‘protocol=https’.
