Telegraf output data formats
This page documents an earlier version of Telegraf. Telegraf v1.26 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v1.26 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.
- InfluxDB Line Protocol
- Prometheus Remote Write
- ServiceNow Metrics
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 ## more about them here: ## https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf/blob/master/docs/DATA_FORMATS_OUTPUT.md data_format = "influx"
