Network Response Monitoring

Why use the Network Response Telegraf plugin?

This plugin allows you to monitor UDP and TCP connections to ensure the services using those protocols function properly. This allows users to rule out potential connection issues for their applications.

Knowing this will help you to maintain application or service uptime, and therefore keep your SLA promises to your customers. Furthermore, you can combine these metrics with metrics collected from other Telegraf plugins like SNMP, System, PF, and Processes to get a fully integrated view of your network health.

How to monitor Network Response using the Telegraf plugin

Configure the plugin to collect the metrics you need for your environment. Once you have the configuration set, point your Telegraf plugin to InfluxDB to start collecting those metrics.
