DevOps & Backend Engineer, Mist.io
Integrating Telegraf, InfluxDB and Mist to Manage Multicloud Infrastructures
Mist is an open source multicloud management platform. Mist.io’s goal is to make multicloud simple and offer a single interface from where you can manage everything. To help users make informed decisions about their infrastructure, Mist is integrating with Telegraf and InfluxDB for collecting and storing monitoring metrics. This is an evolution of a previous stack based on collectd and Graphite. This session will go over why Mist.io moved and the implementation details of its current stack. The session will also analyze the challenges faced and the solutions built. This session is a follow-up to this webinar presentation which focuses more on the technical details.

Simplify Your Kubernetes Monitoring with InfluxDB 2.0 and InfluxDB Templates
Kubernetes monitoring is one of the biggest use cases for time series databases. It presents interesting challenges for an organization due to the high quantities of events and the variety of metrics collected. InfluxDB 2.0 to the rescue — it provides the combined power of the famous TICK Stack with powerful pre-built templates that will save time and reduce the complexities associated with setting up a Kubernetes monitoring dashboard. InfluxDB Templates are super easy to create and set up. Get ready to monitor your Kubernetes in very little time!

IIoT Monitoring with MQTT Sparkplug, HiveMQ and InfluxDB
The aim of the session is to show how a modern and resource-saving industrial IoT architecture can be built with the help of MQTT Sparkplug, HiveMQ and InfluxDB. Starting with challenges in classic OT/IT systems, the concepts of Sparkplug will be explained, and the session will cover how they can be implemented with MQTT to fulfill requirements for a modern IIoT solution. Attendees will also learn the entire setup process.
Senior MQTT & Architecture Consultant, HiveMQ

Associate Professor, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
Illuminating the Dark Data of Critical Infrastructure
Critical infrastructure, such as manufacturing facilities, power plants, dams, and chemical plants, has long experienced a phenomenon known as dark data – crucial information is locked away in disparate and proprietary systems. At Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, we are teaching students to unlock this data with the help of tools such as Telegraf and InfluxDB to better make informed decisions. In addition, these tools allow our students to investigate best practices in data handling and critical infrastructure cybersecurity.
Software Engineer, InfluxData
Layer by Layer: Printing Your Own External Input Plugin for Telegraf
The goal of this talk is to give listeners the context they need to create their own external plugin today. Sebastian provides the how-to knowledge by going over an external input plugin he created for monitoring 3D printing, starting with the minimum requirements to get started and then showing how he extended it for his own personal use case. The talk highlights how choosing to create your plugin idea externally lets you own your plugin’s full lifecycle and is a great way to immediately begin using it with Telegraf.
Software Sr Principal Engineer at Dell Technologies
InfluxDB for Storage System Monitoring
This talk tells the story of how Dell switched its internal monitoring system shipped with Dell EMC ECS Enterprise Object Storage from a home-grown monitoring system to InfluxDB-based stack. The session will cover the following topics:
- Lessons learned on completely changing the monitoring stack on the shipped system while doing continuous releases
- Building a separate service running Flux language which connects to InfluxDB instances
- Running multiple InfluxDB instances for HA
- Using Flux language for Grafana dashboards and alerting rules
- How to control metrics ingest rate and cardinality to have predictable resource consumption
- Shipping InfluxDB with storage system for internal monitoring and running InfluxDB with low memory constraints (3Gb)
About Maksim Vazhenin: Maksim is a tech lead of the Monitoring team in Dell EMC ECS Enterprise Object Storage. He is the main person behind rebooting the whole monitoring stack in ECS and now for implementing it for the Kubernetes-based platform.
Maksim led development of key components for Software Defined/DIY ECS deployment model and also was actively involved in the customer beta program and on-site support activities to bring ECS DIY to production for one of the largest ECS customers.
Current role of technical lead in ECS monitoring team allows Maksim to drive adaptation of modern monitoring solutions for internal storage monitoring on traditional ECS appliances as well as implementing monitoring solution for Dell EMC ObjectScale storage running on kubernetes in VMware Cloud Foundation.
Director of Engineering, Configured Things
Policy-Driven Real-Time Data Filtering from IoT Sensors with Flux
Data is central to any smart city, and valuable to a range of different consumers. However, access to the data has to be balanced against privacy concerns to ensure that each recipient only receives the set and quality of data they are authorized to access. This talk describes a solution developed around InfluxDB and Flux which filters data in real time according to a declarative policy model and delivers it securely via web-socket data streams.
About Phil Day: Phil has over 25 years of experience in developing and delivering complex distributed system. Prior to joining Configured Things, he was a Distinguished Technologist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. He has been awarded a number of patents on secure communication in federated systems.
