Monitor System Metrics with the TICK Stack on CentOS 7

This article will guide you on how the TICK stack can be a powerful tool for storing, analyzing, and visualizing time series data. To monitor InfluxDB _internal metrics in a production #cluster, use Telegraf and the influxdb input plugin to capture these metrics from the InfluxDB /debug/vars endpoint and store them in an external InfluxDB monitoring instance.

More about Kapacitor:

#Kapacitor is a native data processing engine for #InfluxDB 1. x and is an integrated component in the InfluxDB 2.0 platform. 

Kapacitor can process both stream and batch data from InfluxDB, acting on this data in real-time via its programming language TICKscript.

A retention policy (RP) is the part of InfluxDB data structure that describes for how long InfluxDB keeps data. 

InfluxDB compares your local server's timestamp to the timestamps on your data and deletes data that are older than the RP's DURATION . 

A single database can have several RPs and RPs are unique per database.
