i am using various input tail plugin to fetch system metrics and populate them in influxdb.
i have specified an interval of 10s in the telegraf.conf file and this setup was working fine but for past few days data is not being reported into influxdb at the specified time interval.
in fact the data reporting is not even periodic anymore.
i then tried to output the data into a local file to check if it repeats and data appears to report in the file just fine.
could anyone please help with this situation?
