NATS Consumer Input Plugin

The NATS consumer plugin reads from specified NATS subjects and adds messages to InfluxDB. The plugin expects messages in the Telegraf Input Data Formats. A Queue Group is used when subscribing to subjects so multiple instances of telegraf can read from a NATS cluster in parallel.

Configuration

# Read metrics from NATS subject(s)
[[inputs.nats_consumer]]
  ## urls of NATS servers
  servers = ["nats://localhost:4222"]
  ## Use Transport Layer Security
  secure = false
  ## subject(s) to consume
  subjects = ["telegraf"]
  ## name a queue group
  queue_group = "telegraf_consumers"
  ## Maximum number of metrics to buffer between collection intervals
  metric_buffer = 100000

  ## Each data format has its own unique set of configuration options, read
