I am not experienced with Telegraf and I have run into this problem. The config was previously working, but then something changed and I don’t know what the issue is (and didn’t backup the working config!).
So any help would be appreciated.
I have configured Telegraf to collect from an mqtt queue, but it is not working and I can’t see the reason why.
2022-11-15T19:30:13Z E! [telegraf] Error running agent: Error loading config file /etc/telegraf/telegraf.conf: plugin inputs.mqtt_consumer: line 128: configuration specified the fields [“measurement_name”], but they weren’t used
The relevant config
# Configuration for sending metrics to InfluxDB [[outputs.influxdb_v2]] urls = ["<removed>.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com"] bucket = "ems-esp" token = "<removed>" organization = "<removed>" # Below is line 128 where the error occurs [[inputs.mqtt_consumer]] ## Broker URLs for the MQTT server or cluster. To connect to multiple ## clusters or standalone servers, use a separate plugin instance. ## example: servers = ["tcp://localhost:1883"] ## servers = ["ssl://localhost:1883"] ## servers = ["ws://localhost:1883"] servers = ["tcp://192.168.178.61:1883"] topics = [ "ems-esp/boiler_data_ww", "ems-esp/boiler_data", "ems-esp/thermostat_data", "ems-esp/thermostat_data_hc1", "ems-esp/solar_data", "ems-esp/heartbeat", "ems-esp/info", ] data_format = "json" [[inputs.mqtt_consumer]] servers = ["tcp://192.168.178.61:1883"] topics = [ "shellies/ht_lounge/info" ] data_format = "json"
But the line the error points to is just the definition
[[inputs.mqtt_consumer]] and I don’t see the problem. Nor can I find anything else in the file that is incorrect.
I am running Telegraf in docker, in case that makes a difference.
