Error writing to output

Hi,

I capture some logs, they are 2 errors and would like to know if these are caused by the time out from influxdb :slight_smile:

Thanks for your help

Whatā€™s strange in this log is when there is a time out from influx, telegraf doesnā€™t flush the buffer anymore, the buffer is increasing.
