Telegraf is a plugin-driven server agent written by the folks over at InfluxData for collecting & reporting metrics. This chart runs a DaemonSet of Telegraf instances to collect host level metrics for your cluster. If you need to poll individual instances of infrastructure or APIs there is a stable/telegraf-s chart that is more suited to that usecase.


$ helm install stable/telegraf-ds


This chart bootstraps a telegraf-ds deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.


  • Kubernetes 1.4+ with Beta APIs enabled

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

$ helm install --name my-release stable/telegraf-ds

The command deploys a Telegraf daemonset on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section as well as the values.yaml file lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The default configuration parameters are listed in values.yaml. To change the defaults, specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release \
  --set config.outputs.influxdb.url= \

The above command allows the chart to deploy by setting the InfluxDB URL for telegraf to write to.

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the above parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml stable/telegraf-ds
