How to split short term and long term VictoriaMetrics storage

submitted by farcaller…

I finally got to cleaning up the metrics in my homelab and researched the means to separate my long-term and short-term data. This way you can scrape all kinds of noisy sources (e.g. kubernetes) while having a separate store for things you want to observe on longer time windows (months and years). The best thing? It's transparent for grafana and the like, so you can keep all your dashboards intact.

A little off topic, but on first glance I thought that website was called fart caller.

On topic, I've never Heard of this service. I still haven't setup anything like this. Might give it a try.
