How can I differentiate fields and tags while writing from statsD to InfluxDB?

#1

Hello,

I am using statsd to log my events. Now when I log my events, all are getting stored as tag keys.

I tried to use the template by passing the field name but it does not work for me.

“statsD” input plugin does not have a way to segregate to fields and tag ?

I tried to parse statsD metrics like “measurement|ms|#field1:value1 field2:value2” but it does not write as fields.

i.e when I do "show field keys ", it does not show any field keys.
Any information regarding this would be a great help.
