Logfmt input data format

Warning! This page documents an earlier version of Telegraf, which is no longer actively developed. Telegraf v1.9 is the most recent stable version of Telegraf.

The logfmt data format parses logfmt data into Telegraf metrics.

  data_format = "logfmt"

Metrics

Each key/value pair in the line is added to a new metric as a field. The type of the field is automatically determined based on the contents of the value.
