I have telegraf and influxdb installed on a Pi3. In the <telegraf.conf>, I have one Input configured, and it’s an MQTT input. The one output is the influxDB.
When I run telegraf from console, I get this error after about a minute:
2017/11/09 00:18:16 E! Service for input inputs.mqtt_consumer failed to start, exiting
Network Error : dial tcp 22.214.171.124:0: i/o timeout
Is this because I didn’t install the plugin? I see the <mqtt_consumer.go> on github, but how are plugins installed? I read the doc but looks like it doesn’t mention how to actually install the plugins. Do you just download the .go file into <etc/telegraf> directory? OR maybe the <etc/telegraf/telegraf.d>?
I’m running v. 1.1.2.
