Data Collection Basics

In this session by InfluxDB University, we walk you through the basics of Telegraf, the open source server agent used to collect metrics from your applications, sensors, and systems. It is InfluxDB’s native data collector and supports over 300 inputs and outputs. In this session we cover how to install and start using Telegraf, the different types of Telegraf plugins, and how to use specific plugins, like Execd and Starlark.
