First time I’ve used Telegraf, so sorry if it’s a basic question.
I installed Telegraf v1.26.0 on a Oracle Cloud server with Ubuntu, using the official install/setup guide, and setup the initial config by running
telegraf --sample-config --input-filter cpu:mem:disk --output-filter influxdb_v2 > telegraf.conf which worked OK, and I can see the data arriving in Influx.
However, I wanted to add another plugin -
[[outputs.mqtt]], so I copied the plugin conf from the git repo and pasted it into the
telegraf.conf file, adding my mqtt server details.
I then restarted telegraf but it would not run, until I removed the section that I added.
I’ve read the guide, but cannot understand what the correct way is to add additional plugins in an already working system.
/etc/telegraf, I have;
root@server-a:/etc/telegraf# ls telegraf.conf telegraf.conf.sample telegraf.d
There is nothing in
