SigNoz Deployment and Collector Concerns in Multi-Cluster Application

TLDR Romil asks about deploying k8s-infra chart and collector roles in a multi-cluster setup. Ankit recommends deploying k8s-infra chart for each cluster, and mentions the importance of using SigNoz's otel-collector for their data schema.

i'm testing an application where i have 20 clusters around the world, feeding them through a single signoz collector then to clickhouse is a huge bottleneck. if i can deploy the k8s-infra chart into each cluster which directly writes to clickhouse then i just need 1 deployment of signoz in the data cluster to visualize. is this going to cause an issue? does the signoz collector have anything special?

ideally, k8s-infra chart should be deployed on each of these clusters to collect and forward data to SigNoz from individual clusters

signoz's otel-collector prepares data according to schema we support. It cannot be done using non signoz's component
