    • Jolokia2 -- agent and proxy input plugins collect JMX metrics from an HTTP endpoint using Jolokia's JSON-over-HTTP protocol. The original Jolokia plugin is now deprecated in this release. - Nginx Plus -- captures metrics and stats from the commercial version of the open source web server Nginx. - OpenSMTPD -- gathers metrics from OpenSMTPD - a free implementation of the server-side SMTP protocol. - Webhooks -- allows developers to configure Webhooks to call Telegraf and pass metrics via a JSON payload. - PF -- gathers information from the FreeBSD/OpenBSD PF firewall. - Postfix -- reports on the queue length (number of items), size (bytes used by items), and age (age of oldest item in seconds) for each of the active, hold, incoming, maildrop, and deferred queues on a Postfix mail server. - S.M.A.R.T. -- gathers metrics using the command line utility smartctl for S.M.A.R.T.
