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


TrueNAS uses Graphite to gather metrics and create visualizations.

TrueNAS uses collectd to provide reporting statistics.

Reporting data is saved to permit viewing and monitoring usage trends over time. This data is preserved across system upgrades and restarts.

Because reporting data is written frequently do not store it on the boot pool or operating system device.

TrueNAS clears the report history when you change the report CPU, graph age, or graph points options.

Data files are saved in /var/db/collectd/rrd/.
