OpenTSDB with HTTP¶
Netdata can easily communicate with OpenTSDB using HTTP API. To enable this channel, set the following options in your
[backend] type = opentsdb:http destination = localhost:4242
In this example, OpenTSDB is running with its default port, which is
4242. If you run OpenTSDB on a different port, change the
destination = localhost:4242 line accordingly.
As of v1.16.0, Netdata can send metrics to OpenTSDB using TLS/SSL. Unfortunately, OpenTDSB does not support encrypted connections, so you will have to configure a reverse proxy to enable HTTPS communication between Netdata and OpenTSBD. You can set up a reverse proxy with Nginx.
After your proxy is configured, make the following changes to
[backend] type = opentsdb:https destination = localhost:8082
In this example, we used the port
8082 for our reverse proxy. If your reverse proxy listens on a different port, change the
destination = localhost:8082 line accordingly.
