any chance anyone has sized the volume of data / disk space node exporter uses…
if we know we will scrape every 30 seconds, implies 2 per minute, = 120 hour = 2880/day = 86 400 (month working on 30 days). what would this translate to on disk ?
any similar match for kube metrics ?
It depends on how many metrics are returned, which depends on the system and which collectors you have enabled. Look at
Each sample takes up about 1.5 bytes, so if the node_exporter on your system is returning 500 samples, that’s 750 bytes per scrape or about 62MiB/month.
default node_export on a basic linux OS.
what is counted as a sample, is that per host scraped ?
define the 500 please.
