Prometheus Remote Write input data format

This page documents an earlier version of Telegraf. Telegraf v1.26 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v1.26 documentation.

Use the Prometheus Remote Write plugin to convert Prometheus Remote Write samples directly into Telegraf metrics.

If you are using InfluxDB 1.x and the [Prometheus Remote Write endpoint]( to write in metrics, you can migrate to InfluxDB 2.0 and use this parser. For the metrics to completely align with the 1.x endpoint, add a Starlark processor as described here.


Use the inputs.http_listener_v2 plug and set data_format = "prometheusremotewrite"

  ## Address and port to host HTTP listener on
  service_address = ":1234"
  ## Path to listen to.
  path = "/recieve"
  ## Data format to consume.
  data_format = "prometheusremotewrite"


Example Input

		Timeseries: []*prompb.TimeSeries{
				Labels: []*prompb.Label{
					{Name: "__name__", Value: "go_gc_duration_seconds"},
					{Name: "instance", Value: "localhost:9090"},
					{Name: "job", Value: "prometheus"},
					{Name: "quantile", Value: "0.99"},
				Samples: []prompb.Sample{
					{Value: 4.63, Timestamp: time.Date(2020, 4, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, time.UTC).UnixNano()},

Example Output

prometheus_remote_write,instance=localhost:9090,job=prometheus,quantile=0.99 go_gc_duration_seconds=4.63 1614889298859000000
