The Telegraf configuration file (telegraf.conf) lists all of the available plugins. The current version is available here: telegraf.conf
Generating a Configuration File A default Telegraf configuration file can be auto-generated by Telegraf:
telegraf config > telegraf.conf To generate a configuration file with specific inputs and outputs, you can use the –input-filter and –output-filter flags:
telegraf –input-filter cpu:mem:net:swap –output-filter influxdb:kafka config Environment variables Environment variables can be used anywhere in the configuration file by prepending them with $.
How to configure Telegraf as a Windows service.
This guide will show you how to capture Telegraf output, submit sample metrics, and see how Telegraf formats and emits points to its output plugins.
Capture output A quick way to view Telegraf output is by enabling a new UDP output plugin to run in parallel with the existing output plugins. Since each output plugin creates its own stream, the already existing outputs will not be affected. Traffic will be replicated to all active outputs.
