I’m currently testing
version 2.0.0 (fb95362) running on an AWS EC2 instance and generating the configuration file for Telegraf via the GUI. I noticed that it uses the IP address of the GUI’s URL whenever it generates the configuration file (e.g.
For example, if I access it using the public IP address of the EC2 instance, it will use that public IP address when it generates the Telegraf URL configuration.
urls = ["http://54.xxx.xxx.xxx:8086"]
I like the idea of just pointing the Telegraf agent to a remote configuration file instead of generating the configuration file on the remote machines but is it possible to tell InfluxDB that I want to use a base IP address for the URLs instead of it using the IP from the URL used to access the GUI?
