Telegraf is a collecting agent which periodically queries data source, for example, MySQL, Perfmon, etc and sends collected data to a destination, for example to InfluxDB time-series database. We should have an output source already in place which is InfluxDB in this post. Let's set up telegraf on windows.



PREVIOUS MILESTONE STEPS

Step 01 - Setup InfluxDB


MILESTONE STEPS


Step 1 - Download Telegraf

Step 2 - Extract to Program Files

Step 3 - Run Telegraf as Service



  • In a newly opened window, scroll to window version.

  • Paste URL in the browser

  • Zip folder would be downloaded



  • Open command prompt as admin

  • Create a directory under ProgramFiles

mkdir Telegraf
  • Extract contents of the downloaded folder from the previous step to the Telegraf directory



  • Open a command prompt as admin.

  • Go to "C:\Program Files\Telegraf"

  • Give the command to install telegraf service

telegraf.exe–service install

net start telegraf


As a result, you should see below in window services(Win+ R -->services.msc)



In case you face any issues in starting the service, go Event Viewer --> Window Logs-->Applications and check for error related to telegraf
