I have a mqtt topic that contains an array as “[aa.a,bb.b]” and seems that my configuration is working more or less as the desired values arrive all the way to the influxdb. However testing the configuration does give errors and outputs twice the line protocol line related to this consumer.
Input from MQTT:
go-eCharger/201397/nrg = [233.74,2.48,3.41,1.24,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0] go-eCharger/201397/tma = [35.5,30.5]
Currently only setting up parsing for the
tma variable. Once that works will do
Configuration for telegraf:
[[inputs.mqtt_consumer]] servers = ["tcp://localhost:1883"] topics = [ "go-eCharger/+/tma", # temperature sensors ] data_format = "json_v2" topic_tag = "" connection_timeout = "30s" qos = 0 username = "telegraf" password = "Password" [[inputs.mqtt_consumer.topic_parsing]] topic = "go-eCharger/+/+" measurement = "measurement/_/_" tags = "_/chargerid/_" [[inputs.mqtt_consumer.json_v2]] [[inputs.mqtt_consumer.json_v2.object]] path = "@this" optional = true tags = [""] fields = [""] [[inputs.mqtt_consumer.json_v2.field]] path = "0" rename = "t1" type = "float" [[inputs.mqtt_consumer.json_v2.field]] path = "1" rename = "t2" type = "float"
Output from test:
2022-09-23T08:05:41Z D! [serializers.influx] could not serialize field "": invalid field key; discarding field > go-eCharger,chargerid=201397 t1=26,t2=21 1663920341263071772 2022-09-23T08:05:41Z D! [serializers.influx] could not serialize field "": invalid field key; discarding field > go-eCharger,chargerid=201397 t1=26,t2=21 1663920341263071772
What should I change, to get the serializer error away? Or should I just ignore the error, also the line protocol is sent out for every field match. the serializer errors appear also in /var/log/telegraf.log and would fill up the local storage quite soon unless i can figure out what to change in the config to be valid.
