Unable to Load any data into Chronograf

Hello Influx community,

I’m currently stuck with my project in displaying any data on Chronograf, although the InfluxDB is connected to its source. The important data i needed is to view the Syslogs coming from the Syslog server, how do i view it in Chronograf the dropdown is empty. btw, the InfluxDB and Chronograf instances are running on a standalone/offline environment.

Hello @brpascua88,
Welcome!
You’re using the telegraf config?
Can you please share it?

Hello @Anaisdg,
Thank you for responding to my query. I can’t upload or attached the telegraf config but here’s the syslog part of telegraf config installed on my syslog server:

# Accepts syslog messages following RFC5424 format with transports as per RFC5426, RFC5425, or RFC6587

[[inputs.syslog]]

## Specify an ip or hostname with port - eg., tcp://localhost:6514, tcp://10.0.0.1:6514

## Protocol, address and port to host the syslog receiver.

## If no host is specified, then localhost is used.

## If no port is specified, 6514 is used (RFC5425#section-4.1).

server = “tcp://:6514”

server = “tcp://localhost:6514”

## TLS Config

# tls_allowed_cacerts = ["/etc/telegraf/ca.pem"]

# tls_cert = “/etc/telegraf/cert.pem”

# tls_key = “/etc/telegraf/key.pem”

## Period between keep alive probes.

## 0 disables keep alive probes.

## Defaults to the OS configuration.

## Only applies to stream sockets (e.g. TCP).

# keep_alive_period = “5m”

## Maximum number of concurrent connections (default = 0).

## 0 means unlimited.

## Only applies to stream sockets (e.g. TCP).

max_connections = 10

## Read timeout is the maximum time allowed for reading a single message (default = 5s).

## 0 means unlimited.

# read_timeout = “5s”

## The framing technique with which it is expected that messages are transported (default = “octet-counting”).

## Whether the messages come using the octect-counting (RFC5425#section-4.3.1, RFC6587#section-3.4.1),

## or the non-transparent framing technique (RFC6587#section-3.4.2).

## Must be one of “octet-counting”, “non-transparent”.

# framing = “octet-counting”

## The trailer to be expected in case of non-transparent framing (default = “LF”).

## Must be one of “LF”, or “NUL”.

trailer = “LF”

## Whether to parse in best effort mode or not (default = false).

## By default best effort parsing is off.

best_effort = true

## The RFC standard to use for message parsing

## By default RFC5424 is used. RFC3164 only supports UDP transport (no streaming support)

## Must be one of “RFC5424”, or “RFC3164”.

syslog_standard = “RFC5424”

## Character to prepend to SD-PARAMs (default = “_”).

## A syslog message can contain multiple parameters and multiple identifiers within structured data section.

## Eg., [id1 name1=“val1” name2=“val2”][id2 name1=“val1” nameA=“valA”]

## For each combination a field is created.

## Its name is created concatenating identifier, sdparam_separator, and parameter name.

sdparam_separator = “_”

And below is the outputs plugin

# Configuration for sending metrics to InfluxDB

[[outputs.influxdb_v2]]

## The URLs of the InfluxDB cluster nodes.

## Multiple URLs can be specified for a single cluster, only ONE of the

## urls will be written to each interval.

## ex: urls = [“https://us-west-2-1.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com”]

urls = [“http://127.0.0.1:8086”]

urls = [“http://172.22.6.221:8086”]

## Token for authentication.

token = “-a43zmxPN-FPcjuj4llsFl2KuExFBJRf5fdSAzV-Ls9ocDmcZTiuM7oNDOPeAgZCtvzGBowWkcFhdBPgoUUAOw==”

## Organization is the name of the organization you wish to write to; must exist.

organization = “FIS-PNB”

## Destination bucket to write into.

bucket = “Syslog Server”

## The value of this tag will be used to determine the bucket. If this

## tag is not set the ‘bucket’ option is used as the default.

# bucket_tag = “”

## If true, the bucket tag will not be added to the metric.

exclude_bucket_tag = false

## Timeout for HTTP messages.

# timeout = “5s”

## Additional HTTP headers

# http_headers = {“X-Special-Header” = “Special-Value”}

## HTTP Proxy override, if unset values the standard proxy environment

## variables are consulted to determine which proxy, if any, should be used.

# http_proxy = “http://corporate.proxy:3128

## HTTP User-Agent

user_agent = “telegraf”

## Content-Encoding for write request body, can be set to “gzip” to

## compress body or “identity” to apply no encoding.

# content_encoding = “gzip”

## Enable or disable uint support for writing uints influxdb 2.0.

# influx_uint_support = false

## Optional TLS Config for use on HTTP connections.

# tls_ca = “/etc/telegraf/ca.pem”

# tls_cert = “/etc/telegraf/cert.pem”

# tls_key = “/etc/telegraf/key.pem”

## Use TLS but skip chain & host verification

# insecure_skip_verify = false
