Build Your Own Telegraf
Telegraf isn't a huge binary, it's under 100MiB (Docker Images are rougly 250MiB). However, we can make that smaller.
Telegraf ships with A LOT of plugins for supporting all of our users use-cases, but each individidual user only needs around 4/5 plugins.
This tooling aims to make it as simple as pie to build your own custom Telegraf Docker image.
You need Docker
You should have a local directory in the root of your build context called
telegraf with your configuration. This would be what you have in
/etc/telegraf/ on any other deployment.
Provide a Dockerfile. You can use any base layer you want, even scratch. I'm using Alpine.
FROM rawkode/telegraf:byo AS build FROM alpine:3.7 AS telegraf COPY --from=build /etc/telegraf /etc/telegraf COPY --from=build /go/src/github.com/influxdata/telegraf/telegraf /bin/telegraf ENTRYPOINT [ "/bin/telegraf" ]
Build Docker Image
docker image build --tag your_image_name --build-arg VERSION=1.10 .
