Collect data with input 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.
Telegraf input plugins are used with the InfluxData time series platform to collect metrics from the system, services, or third-party APIs. All metrics are gathered from the inputs you enable and configure in the Telegraf configuration file.
For a complete list of input plugins and links to their detailed configuration options, see input plugins.
In addition to plugin-specific data formats, Telegraf supports a set of common data formats available when configuring many of the Telegraf input plugins.
