Running through old logs, slowly

I would like to load old logs from log files, but I don’t want to overwhelm the influxdb server.

Is Telegraf the tool for this? Or is it more meant for live data?

If not, what’s the suggested tool?

Telegraf will try to write as fast as possible, I think it is not ideal for historical inserts and one time batch jobs. It would be possible to hack in some rate limiting fairly easy though. If you don’t find another solution let me know and I could set you up with a custom build.
