OpenTSDB Output Plugin

This plugin writes to an OpenTSDB instance using either the "telnet" or Http mode.

Using the Http API is the recommended way of writing metrics since OpenTSDB 2.0 To use Http mode, set useHttp to true in config. You can also control how many metrics is sent in each http request by setting batchSize in config.

See http://opentsdb.net/docs/build/html/api_http/put.html for details.

Transfer "Protocol" in the telnet mode

The expected input from OpenTSDB is specified in the following way:

put <metric> <timestamp> <value> <tagk1=tagv1[ tagk2=tagv2 ...tagkN=tagvN]>

The telegraf output plugin adds an optional prefix to the metric keys so that a subamount can be selected.

put <[prefix.]metric> <timestamp> <value> <tagk1=tagv1[ tagk2=tagv2 ...tagkN=tagvN]>

The OpenTSDB telnet interface can be simulated with this reader:

// opentsdb_telnet_mode_mock.go
package main

import (
	"io"
	"log"
	"net"
	"os"
)

func main() {
	l, err := net.Listen("tcp", "localhost:4242")
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
	defer l.Close()
	for {
		conn, err := l.Accept()
		if err != nil {
			log.Fatal(err)
		}
		go func(c net.Conn) {
			defer c.Close()
			io.Copy(os.Stdout, c)
		}(conn)
	}
}

Allowed values for metrics

OpenTSDB allows integers and floats as input values
