logfmt data format parses logfmt data into Telegraf metrics.
[[inputs.file]] files = ["example"] ## Data format to consume. ## Each data format has its own unique set of configuration options, read ## more about them here: ## https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf/blob/master/docs/DATA_FORMATS_INPUT.md data_format = "logfmt" ## Set the name of the created metric, if unset the name of the plugin will ## be used. metric_name = "logfmt"
Each key/value pair in the line is added to a new metric as a field. The type of the field is automatically determined based on the contents of the value.
