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 Clustered.

# ...

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

# ...

See how to Configure Telegraf.
