Sorry - bit of a telegraf/influxdb newbie so apologies if this has been asked / answered before…
I’m trying to do the following:
For each metric collected by telegraf (globally) tag each datapoint with an entry ‘anomoly’ (value 0/false)
I can add it easily as a tag using the global tag definition, but when I need to mark some data as anomalous this will cause issues - I’m thinking it’s better to change a field value
I’ve read numerous articles pointing to use of the processors.converter pieces, but unfortunately the info is a little thin on the ground for me to comprehend how to actually do it with my limited understanding.
Does anyone have an example of this sort of conversion of a tag->field using the converter? Or am I doing something completely strange and should reconsider?
