Hi Team,

we are trying to configure Telegraf, InfluxDB, Grafana for my NX-OS 9.3 (5).

if someone please help us to get validate the below input login script for infloux.


Address and port of the GNMI GRPC server

addresses = [“”] // ip address of nexus

define credentials

username = “admin” // nexus login IP address
password = “cisco@123” // nexus login password & self-signed certificate password is same…

GNMI encoding requested (one of: “proto”, “json”, “json_ietf”)

encoding = “proto”

enable client-side TLS and define CA to authenticate the device

enable_tls = true
tls_ca = “/etc/telegraf/gnmi.pem”
insecure_skip_verify = true


Name of the measurement that will be emitted

name = “Telemetry-Demo”

Origin and path of the subscription

origin = “openconfig”
path = “/interfaces/interface/state/counters”

I have doubt on below lines, i dont understand the actual meaning of that.

Origin and path of the subscription
