Logfmt input data format

Use the logfmt data format to parse logfmt data into Telegraf metrics.

Configuration

[[inputs.file]]
  files = ["example"]

  ## Data format to consume.
  ## Each data format has its own unique set of configuration options, read
  ## more about them here:
  ##   https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf/blob/master/docs/DATA_FORMATS_INPUT.md
  data_format = "logfmt"

  ## Array of key names which should be collected as tags. Globs accepted.
  logfmt_tag_keys = ["method","host"]

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.

Examples

- method=GET host=example.org ts=2018-07-24T19:43:40.275Z connect=4ms service=8ms status=200 bytes=1653
+ logfmt,host=example.org,method=GET ts="2018-07-24T19:43:40.275Z",connect="4ms",service="8ms",status=200i,bytes=1653i

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.
