Logfmt input data format

This page documents an earlier version of Telegraf. Telegraf v1.15 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v1.15 documentation.

The logfmt data format parses logfmt data into Telegraf metrics.

Configuration

[[inputs.file]]
  files = ["example"]

  ## Data format to consume.
  ## Each data format has its own unique set of configuration options, read
  ## more about them here:
  ##   https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf/blob/master/docs/DATA_FORMATS_INPUT.md
  data_format = "logfmt"

  ## Set the name of the created metric, if unset the name of the plugin will
  ## be used.
  metric_name = "logfmt"

Metrics

Each key/value pair in the line is added to a new metric as a field. The type of the field is automatically determined based on the contents of the value.
