Learn how to send data collected by Telegraf to Wavefront.

Telegraf is a popular, plugin-driven, collector agent. It is very similar to collectd but has a few advantages:

  • It supports point tags out-of-the-box which can make for cleaner metric namespaces in many cases.
  • All plugins ship as part of a single binary, meaning you don’t have to worry about installing dependencies in most cases.
  • It also works out-of-the-box with Wavefront using the OpenTSDB or Wavefront output plugin.

To integrate Telegraf, follow the instructions in the in-product Telegraf integration.
