I have an InfluxDB up and running in my network, and decided to monitor all (well, all possible - the QNAP seems to be a problem) devices. That’s quite easy to do by installing Telegraf as a server agent, and add some configuration. Everything is deployed using Ansible, so I can re-use the same Playbook for many devices.
Let’s assume I have a laptop which I want to monitor. The hostname is
sunlight (it’s not, I’m just using this as an example).
