You can use the OpenTSDB connector for the exporting engine to archive your agent's metrics to OpenTSDB databases for long-term storage, further analysis, or correlation with data from other sources.
To enable data exporting to an OpenTSDB database, run
./edit-config exporting.conf in the Netdata configuration
directory and set the following options:
enabled = yes
destination = localhost:4242
:https modifiers to the connector type if you need to use other than a plaintext protocol. For example:
opentsdb:https:my_opentsdb_instance. You can set basic HTTP authentication credentials using
username = my_username
password = my_password
The OpenTSDB connector is further configurable using additional settings. See the exporting reference doc for details.
