Telegraf output data formats

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

In addition to output-specific data formats, Telegraf supports the following set of common data formats that may be selected when configuring many of the Telegraf output plugins.

You will be able to identify the plugins with support by the presence of a data_format configuration option, for example, in the File (file) output plugin:

[[outputs.file]]
  ## Files to write to, "stdout" is a specially handled file.
  files = ["stdout"]

  ## Data format to output.
  ## Each data format has its own unique set of configuration options, read

  data_format = "influx"
