Use Telegraf to write data

Telegraf is a no-code data collection agent for collecting and reporting metrics. Its vast library of input plugins and “plug-and-play” architecture lets you quickly and easily collect metrics from many different sources.

For a list of available plugins, see Telegraf plugins.


Basic Telegraf usage

Telegraf is a plugin-based agent with plugins that are enabled and configured in your Telegraf configuration file (telegraf.conf). Each Telegraf configuration must have at least one input plugin and one output plugin.

Telegraf input plugins retrieve metrics from different sources. Telegraf output plugins write those metrics to a destination.

Use the outputs.influxdb_v2 plugin to write metrics collected by Telegraf to InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated.

# ...

  urls = [""]
  token = "${INFLUX_TOKEN}"
  organization = ""
  bucket = "DATABASE_NAME"

# ...

See how to Configure Telegraf.

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
