How to use telegraf with InfluxDB Cloud without an additional server

Is it possible to use telegraf with InfluxDB Cloud without an additional server?
At the moment I have to keep my computer running in the background with telegraf --config https://eu-central-1-1.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com/api/v2/telegrafs/07a5541exxxxxxxx
Any Idea?

Not currently. Telegraf requires a machine/VM or server/cloud instance hosted by yourself to be running to gather the metrics. Telegraf is pretty lean, so can run on very minimal hardware requirements.

Hey @popey, thanks for your reply. I was just wondering, if I really need that extra step.
Would be really nice if it where usable just with InfluxDB Cloud.

I understand the requirement. We have had other customers and community users requesting it in the past. I’ll pass your feedback on to the team.
