Collecting DATA with telegraf

#1

Hello,

i want to collect Data with telegraf which is in a Docker-Container(linux-Container) from a WINDOWS Server (Hyper-V), a Windows 10, a Ubiquiti WIFI System (SNMP) and a Synology NAS and a QNAP NAS, i am a starter in this and the collecting of my Docker-Containers (Metric) a runnig but no Windows or Others, can you help me?
Here the telegraf.conf

I get this Message from Telegraf
[telegraf] Error running agent: Error parsing /etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf, Undefined but requested input: win_perf_counter

And no data over snmp

#2

Where is your telegraf agent running, is it on the Windows machine that is hosting the docker container? Or from within the docker container?

Are you using the windows version of telegraf binaries if you are running telegraf on the Windows machine?

http://docs.influxdata.com/telegraf/v1.10/introduction/installation/

#3

With agent you mean the Programm which using telegraf. Conf
the telegraf is running in a Linux docker container
I can send the docker-compose.yml tommorow

#4

The win_perf_counter plugin only works, and is only included, in the Windows build, as it uses pdh.dll under the hood.

#5

Okay,
what must I do to get data from a windows host/pc into the telegraf docker?

#6

The only way I know to get the performance counter data from within Docker is to use a Windows container. This has been reported to work at least on Windows 10 professional.
https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf/issues/5357

It is potentially possible, and this is a real longshot, that somehow you could use wine. I haven’t talked to anyone crazy enough to try this though.

#7

Okay,

Or can I build the docker container for the influxdb, telegraf and grafana in the RealNetworks 192.168.178. 0 instead of 10.75.0.0 and instell the telegraf agent on windows and choose the output source the influxdb containers

#8

I’m not sure I understand, but you could definitely run Telegraf on the real Windows host and send the data into the container running InfluxDB.

#9

Yes,
it works now, i can see Metrics from my Windows 10 PC and Windows 10 Notebook!
But the snmp part didn’t work!
I think I’m on the wrong track, because i put the snmp-Input part into the telegraf.conf from the Docker telegraf, but i think it is wrong!
But what must i do, to Evaluate the data or to get the snmp data into the influxdb and than to see them in the grafa?

#10

The official docker containers doesn’t contain the net-snmp tools needed for the snmp plugin. Here is a comment describing a way to rebuild the container with the extra bits. Keep an eye on the Telegraf logs to help with troubleshooting.

#11

Thank you it works, i see the status.
Last Question
I have a QNAP NAS System and i want to collcet data from there, but the telegraf don’t understand the QNAP SNMP, but i have the MIB?
How can i get it into the telegraf?

#12

OKAY, i am getting the SNMP from my UBIQUITI!
