Running Multiple Telegraf instance with kafka Input and InfluxDB output


I am pretty new to telegraf and I am just playing with it.

I am running two instances of telegraf daemon.
Each daemon has a kafka consumer as input and influxdb as output.

Each input is from a different kafka topic. Each output is to a different MEASUREMENT in “telegraf” DB in influxDB.

When I run both the daemons together, only 1 MEASUREMENT gets created in the database. Once I kill that daemon, the other MEASUREMENT from the other daemon gets created.

Is this an issue or is it expected?
So can I have parallel writes to different MEASUREMENTS to a database at the same time?

Thank you
