I am seeing the following error on my EC2 RHEL instance:
cloudwatch: Error in ListMetrics API call : RequestError: send request failed caused by: Post https://monitoring.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/: dial tcp XX.XXX.16.180:443: i/o timeout.
I can manually run a single telegraf collection and output metrics to stdout using command => telegraf --config telegraf.conf --test. Is there something I have to do to connect port 443? The telegraf service starts up fine and stays in a ‘running’ state but consistently shows the timeout errors above when attempting to connect to cloudwatch. I have configured AWS credentials in the ‘outputs.cloudwatch’ plugin section but it doesn’t even seem like I’m getting that far yet…since it appears not even to successfully connect.
Thanks in advance!
