Question: Does anyone know if this custom version of telegraf was updated https://docs.timescale.com/timescaledb/latest/tutorials/telegraf-output-plugin/#setting-up-telegraf ?
The Timescale team no longer maintains the TimescaleDB adaptation to the Telegraf plugin. PRs were unadopted so it became difficult for us to keep it in step with the latest upstream version. Consequently, it became difficult too to schedule the development efforts as a priority over other initiatives.
However, there are some avenues you might explore.
- Some community members have had success with the HTTP Input plugin
- Aiven has a version of the plugin that incorporates the customizations (at the time of writing this post!)
- Users have reported good outcomes from using the pre-releases binaries attached to [feat: postgresql output by @phemmer ] · Pull Request #8651 · influxdata/telegraf · GitHub](https://github.com/influxdata/telegraf/pull/8651) – Thank you! ** Update September 2022: We understand that release 1.24.0 of telegraf will contain the postgres output plugin **
