I’m trying to collect web access logs with Telegraf into InfluxDB.
The problem is that the access logs have a granularity «to the second» and often a webserver serves the same request multiple times in the same second. That is, all the “TAG” values (Method, Path, Response Status, etc) are the same. I’ve observed up to ~150 similar requests logged in the same second.
This ends up overwriting the data points in InfluxDB and I lose lots of data with LogStash -> InfluxDB.
Does Telegraf have any mechanism to resolve these time-bucket conflicts?
Example, whenever 2+ data points to be written share a similar set of tags + time (thus end up overwriting one another), add an extra tag like “extra=1”, “extra=2”, etc?
