Write data with output plugins

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

Output plugins define where Telegraf will deliver the collected metrics. Send metrics to InfluxDB or to a variety of other datastores, services, and message queues, including Graphite, OpenTSDB, Datadog, Librato, Kafka, MQTT, and NSQ.

For a complete list of output plugins and links to their detailed configuration options, see output plugins.

In addition to plugin-specific data formats, Telegraf supports a set of common data formats available when configuring many of the Telegraf output plugins.
