New Parsers

  • Prometheus Remote Write Parser (prometheusremotewrite)
    • This parser converts prometheus remote write samples directly into Telegraf metrics. Contributed by @influxdata
  • JSON v2 Parser (json_v2)
    • This parser takes valid JSON input and turns it into metrics. This json_v2 plugin should be the preferred JSON parser from the existing JSON parser. Contributed by @influxdata
