In this guide, I’ll show you how to Install Telegraf on Fedora 34/33/32/31/30. Telegraf is an agent written in Go for collecting, processing, aggregating, and writing metrics to a time series database such as InfluxDB, Prometheus e.t.c.

The metrics collected by Telegraf agents running on servers will be pushed to InfluxDB. If you don’t have a running instance of InfluxDB, refer to our guides below on installing InfluxDB:
