Many thanks to all the open source community members who contributed to this effort!

Key new features

  • Static Builds
    • Linux builds are now statically built. Other operating systems were cross-built in the past and as a result, already static.
    • Users should not notice any change in behavior.
    • The _static specific Linux binary is no longer produced as a result.
  • Default Configuration
    • The telegraf config command and default config file provided by Telegraf now includes all plugins and produces the same output across all operating systems.
    • Plugin comments specify supported platform(s).
  • State Persistence
    • State persistence is now available in select plugins.
    • This allows plugins to start collecting data where they left off. A configuration with state persistence cannot change or it will not be able to recover.
