I’m using InfluxDB to collect data from a number of remote sensors. It sits behind an IIS server, whereby posts to https://myserver/write are sent to localhost:8086, ie InfluxDB. This all works fine.
On the server I’m running Telegraf to keep an eye on the memory & disk usage of the server, and with the InfluxDB plugin I also track the number of series and measurements in InfluxDB.
From the system diagram on the web though (eg here it looks like I should be sending my raw sensor data to telegraf as well, and have that pass it on to influx.
Is that correct please, and if so can anyone point me towards some information on how to set this up? Thanks.
