Subject: [InfluxData Community] [Collect] Configuration for Telegraf in AWS With Tagging


I recall some issues submitted that were in the works for Telegraf for better remote collection options using AWS tags.

Since I have a lot of environments, I'm having to use what I consider an overly complicated setup script with Chocolatey in Windows to parse out the AWS EC2 Tags and then dynamically create a tags conf file to include all the tags that the metrics should include.

Is there any other option to grab AWS tags dynamically and little effort so I could remove a lot of complicated meta data parsing and file creation in my telegraf setup and instead automatically tag my Telegraf metrics from more AWS related metadata, or even perhaps a file I create in the environment with metadata prexisting to simplify the install / configuration of telegraf?
