Hi, can telegraf saves data if the influx connection goes down and saves back to influx once its up?
Hi , it can buffer data as you probably know ,
With:metric_buffer_limit = 10000
## For failed writes, telegraf will cache metric_buffer_limit metrics for each ## output, and will flush this buffer on a successful write. Oldest metrics ## are dropped first when this buffer fills. ## This buffer only fills when writes fail to output plugin(s).
Or are you asking if it can be saved on disk ? Here is a discussies about it , it is not yet implemented but
Maybe, this is not high priority right now and requires a substantial amount of design work. One aspect that has changed is that Telegraf will now only acknowledge messages from a queue after it they have been processed (sent from all outputs or filtered), it should be possible to use a queue to transfer messages durably with Telegraf.

Thank you for the reference, I was looking for something on the disk level.
