telegraf feature request
I set up a pfsense appliance box as my homelab equipment，I noticed that telegraf could ONLY monitor metrics such as system,RAM,NET etc....
I also set ntpd,unbound(DNS resolver), could you make telegraf more customize so I could monitor more metrics ?
Thank you !
What do you want to monitor?
You added plugins maybe for those things?
If it works in FreeBSD then it may not be too hard to add them.
I want to monitor the ntp service in pfsense, so I manully add lines into telegraf.conf,it works well.
# Get standard NTP query metrics, requires ntpq executable [[inputs.ntpq]] ## If false, set the -n ntpq flag. Can reduce metric gather times. dns_lookup = true
for example ,ntp offset in grafana:
one more word, CPU temperature monitoring via telegraf is need too, thank you!
So possibly the ability to add a custom .conf file via the GUI package would suffice here?
That may not be too difficult, there are other packages doing that already.
The best thing to do here is to open a feature request here:
