Quick question, I’ve been using the
inputs.cisco_telemetry_mdt input plugin to capture streaming telemetry being sent to the Telegraf server from Cisco switches. So far it seems to be working well, but saw the
gnmi plugin and noticed that the community is starting to gravitate that way, so I went ahead and checked it out.
I had question:
gnmi plugin appears to be a pull model, where the Telegraf agent has a set of credentials, subscriptions, and switch list that it uses to poll the switches in order to get the telemetry to pass to serializers/output plugins. Does this support a push method like the
inputs.cisco_telemetry_mdt plugin? That way I can configure the switches to send the gRPC data to Telegraf and not the other way around, and also allows for redundancy behind a load balancer.
