I am using Telegraf internal metrics to collect the input and output metrics and I have created a dashboard to track those in Grafana. I am getting input metrics from Kafka consumer where I have multiple brokers present and the output is InfluxDB.
My question is that why my output metrics are much higher than the input and internal metrics. As per my understanding, Output metrics should be equal to Input metrics +Internal metrics.
The first row shows metrics for last 24 hours and 2nd row shows metrics for last 1 hour.
My telegraf configuration looks like this:
metric_batch_size = 16000
metric_buffer_limit = 300000
debug = false
interval = “1s”
Thanks for your help!
