Hi Team, I've deployed Signoz in AKS (Azure Kubernetes), it is working ok, but when I increase the amount of services sending traces, otel collector stops, based on my understanding due to lack of memory. Actually AKS has 1 node with 16GB. How can I have otel-collector to scale up? (I'm beginner level with kubernetes)
In the documentation of signoz I've read this: 1. Horizontally scale
which works on the push model and not
which works on the pull model of prometheus scraping. You need to add a different config to add another instance of
to prevent duplication But it doesn't explain much how to achieve it

Rougly how much data are you sending? otel collector doesn't stop. It might reject the data if it can't keep up with the incoming load. You need to increase the replica count for otel collector deployment.

@Jose Infazon thank you! Do you have the link to the docs that mentions horizontal scaling?
