What port telegraf runs on

#1

What is the port where telegraf runs on. Is this different for window and linux?

#2

@errishma That depends on which plugins you have enabled. By default telegraf does not expose any ports.

#3

Thanks Jack. We have default CPU, DISk and MEM plugins enabled.

But can’t figure out what ports are in use by telegraf instance. Please guide.

#4

@errishma There are no ports exposed by any of those plugins.

#5

Actually we are having issue when telegraf installed , it occupies all the ports and server runs out of the port. So I am trying to understand what are the actual ports used when telegraf installed.

@errishma Telegraf does not expose ports by default. It will not expose ports unless you have a service plugin enabled. This sounds like an issue with something else running on on the box. Are you sure this is a telegraf issue?

Telegraf can also collect metrics via the following service plugins:

http_listener
kafka_consumer
mqtt_consumer
nats_consumer
nsq_consumer
logparser
statsd
socket_listener
tail
tcp_listener
udp_listener
webhooks
- filestack
- github
- mandrill
- rollbar

In windows, Team reported that it is because of telegraf. I had to uninstall the telegraf. But when I tried to reproduce, I could not reproduce it. In linux, I saw multiple telegraf processes running with single telegraf instance. So I manually killed the processes. so trying to figure out.

@errishma Please open an issue on telegraf so we can get this resolved. I’ve never heard of anything like that happening with any telegraf installation. I would be extremely surprised if that came from our software.
