Telegraf and Influx

Hi, what should I do to collect metrics from different windows servers to my local machine and visualize that telemetry data in Grafana

for instance I am using Telegraf and InfluxDB
and I have more than one windows servers.

Hello @Alpheus,

So do I have to install InfluxDB and Telegraf on every server to collect telemetry data
and visualize it on my machine ?

You should have a telegraf agent running anywhere you want to collect data from, then you can send that data to one InfluxDB instance if you want.
