I was using the documentation and calculator here:
Something seems a little unclear where it says, for example:
With the above configuration, Netdata will use the following resources on your parent node to store metrics for both parent and child nodes: 64072 MiB in total disk space 16191 MiB in system memory
So here we’re talking about a “parent node” but that implies that I’m streaming to a parent node rather than just making changes on each local agent. So is streaming a requirement here?
Secondly, if I do have to have to stream to a parent node then the guide does not say anything about the child nodes; can I therefore conclude that their requirements do not change?
On a a connected topic, is there any documentation on configuring the database engine for things like how often it’ll write to disk?
