HTTP Listener v2 Input Plugin

HTTP Listener v2 is a service input plugin that listens for metrics sent via HTTP. Metrics may be sent in any supported data format.

Note: The plugin previously known as http_listener has been renamed influxdb_listener. If you would like Telegraf to act as a proxy/relay for InfluxDB it is recommended to use influxdb_listener.


This is a sample configuration for the plugin.

  ## Address and port to host HTTP listener on
  service_address = ":8080"

  ## Path to listen to.
  # path = "/telegraf"

  ## HTTP methods to accept.
  # methods = ["POST", "PUT"]

  ## maximum duration before timing out read of the request
  # read_timeout = "10s"
  ## maximum duration before timing out write of the response
  # write_timeout = "10s"

  ## Maximum allowed http request body size in bytes.
  ## 0 means to use the default of 524,288,000 bytes (500 mebibytes)
  # max_body_size = "500MB"

  ## Part of the request to consume.  Available options are "body" and
  ## "query".
  # data_source = "body"

  ## Set one or more allowed client CA certificate file names to
  ## enable mutually authenticated TLS connections
  # tls_allowed_cacerts = ["/etc/telegraf/clientca.pem"]

  ## Add service certificate and key
  # tls_cert = "/etc/telegraf/cert.pem"
  # tls_key = "/etc/telegraf/key.pem"

  ## Optional username and password to accept for HTTP basic authentication.
  ## You probably want to make sure you have TLS configured above for this.
  # basic_username = "foobar"
  # basic_password = "barfoo"

  ## Optional setting to map http headers into tags
  ## If the http header is not present on the request, no corresponding tag will be added
  ## If multiple instances of the http header are present, only the first value will be used
  # http_header_tags = {"HTTP_HEADER" = "TAG_NAME"}

  ## Data format to consume.
  ## Each data format has its own unique set of configuration options, read
  ## more about them here:
  data_format = "influx"

Metrics are collected from the part of the request specified by the data_source param and are parsed depending on the value of data_format.
