Telegraf Passive data?

Hello Team,

I was looking at the documentation and could not found info about possible configuration :

Telegraf connects, at given interval, on remote devices/services to request data (in a general way), I was looking at the other way, Telegraf receives data from external services/devices (like passive service with Nagios if you remember).

In some cases, you can’t query devices/services because you do not have access to them, but, devices could send data to Telegraf. Is it something that exists in Telegraf ?

Best regards,


Yes, there are several types of listener inputs…

Thanks, I was able to found the correct documentation : telegraf/plugins/inputs/influxdb_listener/ at master · influxdata/telegraf · GitHub
