The Telegraf Toolbelt: It can do that, really?

Telegraf is an agent for collecting, processing, aggregating, and writing metrics.

With over 200 plugins, Telegraf can fetch metrics from a variety of sources, allowing you to build aggregations and write those metrics to InfluxDB, Prometheus, Kafka, and more.

In this talk, we will take a look at some of the lesser known, but awesome, plugins that are often overlooked; as well as how to use Telegraf for monitoring of Cloud Native systems.
