The problem that I am having is modifying my telegraf.conf file to use the [[inputs.exec]] plugin, so that data can be sent from telegraf to influx.
Specifically, when I am in my CLI, I do a standard:
Connected to http://localhost:8086 version 1.8.0
InfluxDB shell version: 1.8.0
Using database telegraf
show field keys from exec
What I want to display is the field keys from exec but nothing is being displayed, even though I have implemented the exec plugin along with the script I am executing. My guess is that I am implementing it in an incorrect manner? I have tried modifying my telegraf.conf in many ways, but with no luck.
For a visual reference, follow this link: https://blogs.cisco.com/developer/dna-center-noc-dashboard
From that article, where it says: “You will now see data being populated in influxdb.”, I am not seeing that data.
I am new to Telegraf, Influxdb and Grafana, so any help would be appreciated
