I am sure this question has been asked many times before but I didn’t see it on the new forum yet:
Is there anything ‘special’ about the Promscale installation which would preclude it from also serving as a general purpose TimescaleDB as well? For my personal requirements, I am operating within Kubernetes and I already need Timescale, Prometheus and Grafana, so it seems that using tobs to join it all together and provide all of the extra monitoring goodies is a no-brainer.
For extra bonus points, if I already have a HA TimescaleDB deployed in my cluster, what would it take to upgrade this to a full, tobs-like installation. I have seen the instructions for using tobs to integrate with Timescale Cloud but I am assuming the process is different if the Timescale database is already in-cluster?, i.e. you wouldn’t want to use tobs’s
--external-timescaledb-uri flag… or could this flag simply be pointed to the existing in-cluster timescale service?
