Telegraf metrics

The metrics in the data model contain four main components:

  • Measurement name: Description and namespace for the metric.
  • Tags: Key/Value string pairs and usually used to identify the metric.
  • Fields: Key/Value pairs that are typed and usually contain the metric data.
  • Timestamp: Date and time associated with the fields.
