Why is the postgresql ouput plugin missing from the docker container and can I add it?

Hi All,

I wanted to test using telegraf to write data streams into a postgresql db. I can see the plugin in the git, but it seems to be missing in the telegraf docker container. So am I missing something (maybe I am using the wrong container?), or maybe there is a way I can add the plugin (into the container or out side of it)?

Many thanks,


The postgresql output is not merged yet. It should be soon and once done you can get it as a part of our nightly builds until we release v1.23.0.

That link you have is to a different branch, not to master either.

Thank you jpowers,

BTW I found another container, telegraf-timescaledb that has the output plugin and seem to work OK

Please be aware that we do not control, monitor for security updates, or update that container image.
