I am using the vsphere plugin and have a dashboard in Grafana similar to this (capacity summary widget) where my datastore metrics are displayed. Recently, after updating telegraf to 1.10.0 I started to notice that after a while, the dashboard would be empty. A simple restart of telegraf doesn’t fix the issue but if I go and uncomment
## Datastores datastore_metric_include =  ## if omitted or empty, all metrics are collected # datastore_metric_exclude =  ## Nothing excluded by default # datastore_instances = false ## false by default for Datastores only
and restart telegraf, it starts working again but only briefly. After a while, it stops again so I will go back and now this time, comment
# datastore_metric_include =  ## if omitted or empty, all metrics are collected
and restart and the metrics are restored but again, only briefly. I am not sure if this is a bug since my skill level doesn’t allow me to further troubleshoot and send in a bug report.
I’ve been using this dashboard for quite some time and only after the update I noticed this behavior.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
