OpenTSDB - multiple instances

Expert Contributor

Hello -

is it possible for me to have multiple instances in OpenTSDB - each instance pointing to a separate Hbase tables for storing timeseries data.

eg. Install 1 - will write data to table - tsdb

Install 2 - will write to table - tsdb2 and so on.
What all files do i need to make changes to make this work ? Essentially, the idea is segregate the time series data, based on functionality. Pls let me know your inputs. thanks!

@Karan Alang I haven't tried this myself but there are some helpful tips below. You would need to create the OpenTSDB instances with different table names but looks like in recent OpenTSDB versions, instead of being able to configure this via CLI argument, you would need to set this in the config properties file
