Manage TSDB Settings

You can use the Paragon Automation GUI to configure the time series database (TSDB) settings:

For more information on TSDB, see Time Series Database (TSDB) Overview.

To configure TSDB settings:

  1. Select Administration > Ingest Settings.

    The Ingest Settings page appears.

  2. Click the TSDB tab to view the TSDB Settings tabbed page.
  3. From the TSDB Settings tabbed page, you can:
    1. Select a node from the TSDB Nodes drop-down list.

      The TSDB Nodes drop-down list displays the available TSDB nodes in the Paragon Insights installation. The TSDB node defined in the current Paragon Insights installation is selected by default.

      (Optional) If you want to delete the node selected by default permanently from Paragon Insights, click X and when you click Save and Deploy, the node is removed form Paragon Insights.

    2. Enter a value for the replication factor in the Replication Factor text box.

      The replication factor determines how many copies of the database is needed. Alternatively, you can use the arrows at the end of the text box to increase or decrease the value of the replication factor.

    3. Click the Dedicate slider to set it to true. This dedicates the node that you selected in step 3.a to TSDB.

      Ensure that you have selected only one node from the TSDB Nodes drop-down list.

    4. Click the Force slider to set it to true. This ensures that all system errors are ignored when you remove a failed TSDB node from Paragon Insights.

      When a TSDB node fails, you can rebuild the damaged server or component. However, if the replication factor is set to one, the TSDB data for the node is lost. In this scenario, the TSDB node must be removed from Paragon Insights. To remove a node, click X and when you click Save and Deploy, the node is removed form Paragon Insights.

      In instances where the TSDB node is not successfully removed, setting the Force slider to true ensures that all system errors are ignored when you remove a failed TSDB node from Paragon Insights.

  4. Do one of the following:
    • Click Save to only save the new configuration settings.

    • Click Save & Deploy to save and deploy the new configuration settings.
