I’m trying to get InfluxDB working for use with Particle.io, an IoT hardware/software platform. They have a Webhook to get data from a Particle device into an InfluxDB, but because I’m using the InfluxDB-hosted free InfluxDB Cloud version, it seems like I must run my own Telegraf service.
The Particle help docs suggest using a AWS EC2 instance to do this.
They actually refer to an InfluxDB AMI that had everything ready to go, but that AMI doesn’t exist anymore. I tried launching one of the influxDB AMI instances that do come up, but I can’t figure out how to get telegraf going. Even when I try to download Telegraf using these instructions:
I’m always running into errors.
Does anyone have suggestions for how to simply get a Telegraf service running on AWS?
