The TICK stack is an easy and performant way to monitor the services that make up a Kubernetes cluster, whether or not you’re running InfluxDB in a Kubernetes cluster or somewhere else.
Why use the InfluxData
kube-influxdb Kubernetes monitoring project
The kube-influxdb project is a set of Helm charts to make collection and visualization of Kubernetes metrics easy. It uses Telegraf, the metrics collection agent is used as the primary agent to collect metrics and events
Collect Kubernetes metrics with Telegraf
The Telegraf metrics collection agent can collect many types of metrics in a Kubernetes cluster, like Docker container metrics and stats from kubelets. It can even scrape Prometheus metrics API endpoints. Telegraf is used in the kube-influxdb project to collect metrics.
Prometheus remote read and write support
InfluxDB supports the Prometheus remote read and write API for clusters already using Prometheus for metrics collection, but need require a more flexible time series data store.
