Supported Telegraf processor plugins

Override (override) – NEW in v1.6

The Override (override) processor plugin allows overriding all modifications that are supported by input plugins and aggregator plugins:

  • name_override
  • name_prefix
  • name_suffix
  • tags

All metrics passing through this processor will be modified accordingly. Select the metrics to modify using the standard measurement filtering options.

Values of name_override, name_prefix, name_suffix, and already present tags with conflicting keys will be overwritten. Absent tags will be created.

Use case of this plugin encompass ensuring certain tags or naming conventions are adhered to irrespective of input plugin configurations, e.g., by taginclude.

Printer (printer)

The Printer (printer) processor plugin simply prints every metric passing through it.
