Differences between Telegraf 1.1 and 1.0

This is archived documentation for InfluxData product versions that are no longer maintained. For newer documentation, see the latest InfluxData documentation.

This page aims to ease the transition from Telegraf 1.0 to Telegraf 1.1. It is not intended to be a comprehensive list of the differences between the versions. See Telegraf’s Changelog for detailed release notes.

Release Notes

Telegraf 1.1 supports processor and aggregator plugins.

On systemd Telegraf will no longer redirect its stdout to /var/log/telegraf/telegraf.log. On most systems, the logs will be directed to the systemd journal and can be accessed by journalctl -u telegraf.service. Consult the systemd journal documentation for configuring journald. There is also a logfile config option available in version 1.1, which will allow users to easily configure telegraf to continue sending logs to /var/log/telegraf/telegraf.log.
