TrueNAS has a built in reporting engine that gives helpful graphs and information about the system.

TrueNAS uses Graphite for metric gathering and visualizations.

The options in System > Reporting control how the graphs in Reporting appear:

General Options

NameDescription
Report CPU usage in PercentWhen set, report CPU usage in percent instead of units of kernel time.
Graphite Separate InstancesEnabling sends the plugin instance and type instance to Graphite as separate path components: host.cpu.0.cpu.idle. Disabling sends the plugin and plugin instance as one path component and type and type instance as another component: host.cpu-0.cpu-idle.
Remote Graphite Server HostnameHostname or IP address of a remote Graphite server.
Graph age in MonthsMaximum time a graph is stored in months (allowed values are 1-60). Changing this value causes the Confirm RRD Destroy dialog to appear. Changes do not take effect until the existing reporting database is destroyed.
Number of Graph PointsNumber of points for each hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly graph (allowed values are 1-4096). Changing this value causes the Confirm RRD Destroy dialog to appear. Changes do not take effect until the existing reporting database is destroyed.
ForceForces the addition of the NTP server, even if it is currently unreachable.
Report history is cleared when Report CPU, Graph Age, or Graph Points are changed.

Reporting data is saved and preserved across system upgrades and reboots. This allows viewing usage trends over time. This data is frequently written and should not be stored on the boot pool or operating system device. Reporting data is saved in /var/db/collectd/rrd/.
