    Nice article.

    For Glances v 3 they have change the syntax, the command it’s now:

    ExecStart=/usr/bin/glances --config /home/admin/.config/glances/glances.conf --quiet --export influxdb --disable-plugin ip

    Why use 3 programs and a complicated flow of data instead of using netdata? Thanks in advance

    Thank you very much! I used it (with modifications) on Ubuntu 16.04.5: It works generally very well!

    But some data series aren’t displayed! To example disk I/O and the network RX/TX …

    Have somebody an idea how to fix this?

    Thank you!

      Ye there’s a typo in there I had this as well.

      There’s a space between the 2 dashes at disable-ip and the config location assumes you are user ‘admin‘.

      Just remove the dashes and fix the username.

      ExecStart=/usr/bin/glances --config /home/YourUsername/.config/glances/glances.conf --quiet --export-influxdb --disable-ip

    Going to give this a go on debian.

    Thanks for the write-up :)
