Install A Dashboard For Default InfluxDB/Telegraf Metrics Install A Dashboard For Default InfluxDB/Telegraf Metrics

Description

Now that we have a default config setup for InfuxDB and Telegraf, we can import a dashboard from the community.

I wil use the dashboard with ID 11116.

https://grafana.com/grafana/dashboards/11116

After importing this dashboard, some of the Network statistics panels won't show any data.

We should also uncomment the inputs.net and inputs.netstat plugins in the telegraf.conf

sudo nano /etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf 

Change

[[inputs.net]]
...
[[inputs.netstat]]

Restart telegraf, and check status

sudo service telegraf restart
sudo service telegraf status

The TCP panels in the dashboard will now show data.
