MySQL collector comes and goes

I 'm trying to monitor a MariaDB database that’s inside a Kubernetes cluster - I have it exposed and set up the netdata user and connect to it just fine from the a “parent” running netdata, one of the VMs running my kubernetes cluster.

To get it running initially I had to set autodiscovery, and then I saw metrics - but, it seems like the collector just stops after some random period of time and then won’t restart until I log in to the parent.

Here’s the mysql.conf from the go.d directory.

update_every: 5
autodetection_retry: 5
priority: 70000
timeout: 1
