Telegraf on Windows fails to stop/start or restart after running for an hour+ #4975
Enable default windows metrics
Windows 2008 R2
This issue is the same as the closed issue: #3601.
Steps to reproduce:
Start Telegraf, let it run for an hour or so.
This issue is observed very often, because Telegraf is not stable on Windows, so it will often fail and services.msc can try to restart the services, but it will not work, as the service must be started TWICE for it to start. Has to resort to running a batch file to start it twice if it is not running. Not a very professional solution on Windows.
To start the first time...
This issue was observer in 1.6x and seemed to be better in 1.7 and the issue was closed. But this issue is still present in all Telegraf versions. Issue #3601 is the original. Should be re-opened as not fixed.
