We are excited to announce that Telegraf 0.1.9, InfluxDB’s native, open source data collecting agent, is now available!
Support for InfluxDB Clusters
PR #143: Telegraf can now write data to InfluxDB clusters by listing out your instances in the URL parameter of the Telegraf config file. Telegraf will randomly select servers until it successfully makes a write.
Support for filtering telegraf outputs on the CLI
PR #217: Telegraf will now allow filtering of output sinks on the command-line using the
-outputfilterflag, much like how the
-filter flag works for plugins.
Support for filtering on config-file creation
PR #217: Telegraf now supports filtering to -sample-config command. You can now run
telegraf -sample-config -filter cpu -outputfilter influxdb to get a config file with only the cpu plugin defined, and the influxdb output defined.
Makefile GOBIN support
make will now work despite a custom bin directory, courtesy of @Vye.
AMQP output plugin
PR #200: Telegraf now supports AMQP output, courtesy of @ekini.
OpenTSDB output plugin
PR #182: Telegraf now supports output to OpenTSDB using telnet mode, courtesy of @rplessl.
Retry failed server connections
PR #187: Telegraf can now be configured to retry the connection to InfluxDB if the initial connection fails.
Add a port tag to the Apache plugin
PR #220: You can now select your Apache port number depending on the URL scheme, courtesy of @neezgee.
InfluxDB output config change:
url is now
urls, and is a list. Config files will still be backwards compatible if only
url is specified.
-test flag output
The -test flag will now output two metric collections
Breaking change: CPU collection plugin
The CPU collection plugin has been refactored to fix some bugs and outdated dependency issues. At the same time, I also decided to fix a naming consistency issue, so
cpu_percentageIdle will become
cpu_usage_idle. Also, all CPU time measurements now have it indicated in their name, so
cpu_idle will become
cpu_time measurements are going to be dropped in the default config.
Breaking change: Memory plugin
The memory plugin has been refactored and some measurements have been renamed for consistency. Some measurements have also been removed from being outputted. They are still being collected by
gopsutil, and could easily be re-added in a “verbose” mode if there is demand for it.
