Can telegraf use pickle protocol to write data into graphite?

Hi,
I am planing to collect SNMP data from few thousand network devices (mostly switches with lots of ports). And we want to write all this data to Graphite.

Graphite accepts data in two ways
plaintext protocol on port 2003
and
pickle protocol on port 2004

The pickle protocol is a much more efficient then the plaintext protocol, and supports sending batches of metrics in one go.

As I understand telegraf by default is using paintext (port 2003).

Sorry, we don’t have support for pickle protocol right now. You could open a feature request on the Telegraf issue tracker.
