Telemetry best practices

The following are some suggested best practices to follow when
deploying and configuring the Telemetry service.

Data collection

  1. The Telemetry service collects a continuously growing set of
    data. Not all the data will be relevant for an administrator to

    • Based on your needs, you can edit the polling.yaml
      and pipeline.yaml configuration files to include select
      meters to generate or process

    • By default, Telemetry service polls the service APIs every 10
      minutes. You can change the polling interval on a per meter basis by
      editing the polling.yaml configuration file.


      If the polling interval is too short, it will likely increase the
      stress on the service APIs.

  2. If polling many resources or at a high frequency, you can add
    additional central and compute agents as necessary. The agents are
    designed to scale horizontally. For more information refer to the high availability


    The High Availability Guide is a work in progress and is changing
    rapidly while testing continues.
