Plugin file for telegraf

I am using telegraf to import csv file in influxdb. For that I am using the plugin “file”. I have just simple questions:

  1. Telegraf read again csv already processed in a previous step or it reads again all matching csv each time?
  2. Is there a way to delete file when processed?

Thank you

The file input plugin reads again each interval, but look at the tail plugin if you want only to read new lines.

There isn’t a way to delete the file, what I think we want a new plugin that provides filesystem based queuing.

Thank you for your reply. In my case I have around ten new files coming each minutes. But I do not want to remove the folder each time. If a file is processed 1 minutes before, is it again completely processed? Is there an impact on the cost computation if there is too many files?
