Hi I am new to InfluxDB and Telegraf and have a local docker image running InfluxDB 1.8.10 and Telegraf 1.22. I signed up for InfluxDB Cloud free plan account to see if I can monitor my local docker InfluxDB and Telegraf instance metrics via the Cloud dashboard template which I setup. But in my telegraf logs I see
2022-10-09T18:36:45Z W! [outputs.influxdb_v2::influxdb_v2] Failed to write to telegraf; will retry in 3m14s. (429 Too Many Requests)

2022-10-09T18:36:45Z E! [agent] Error writing to outputs.influxdb_v2::influxdb_v2: failed to send metrics to any configured server(s)

Does that mean I ran up against my free Cloud account read/write limits? As I do see data in the Cloud added template for InfluxDB 1.x but no data for Telegraf template.
So you can write up to 5MB worth of data every 5 minutes on the free plan. So you might be hitting usage limits. Can you explain a little more what you mean by no data for telegraf template? are you also monitoring telegraf with the internal plugin?
It wasn’t actually no data, just data was severely delayed in showing up - due to rate limit?
Yeah on the Cloud dashboard I saw a popup saying I hit query write limit on free plan heh
Grafana only monitoring InfluxDB not Telegraf but Telegraf I have inputs for both influxdb (Cloud) as well as my local docker instance
# Docker Endpoint
# To use TCP, set endpoint = "tcp://[ip]:[port]"
# To use environment variables (ie, docker-machine), set endpoint = "ENV"

Is there an InfluxDB 1.8 query I can run to get my write data rate on my end to get an idea of what it is?
