I am currently collecting telemetry data every 1 second and storing it in a local data base using influxdb 1.8.
I am also using a node-red flow to query the last value every 5 seconds and then post this data to influx cloud for remote access.
I don’t believe this is the best way to achieve this. Can I use telegraf’s ‘InfluxDB Listener’ plugin to retrieve the data when it is posted and then the influxdb_v2 output plugin to post this to the cloud database?
I am having difficulty getting it to work.
I can use the inputs.system plugin and this posts to my cloud instance, so I know the cloud connection is working correctly.
What am I missing?
