Write data with output plugins

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.

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
