Telegraf is a plugin-driven server agent for collecting & reporting metrics.
You will need to setup your own InfluxDB server InfluxDB server to collect telemetry.
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.
