Cloud proxy by default is not configured to support the use of open source Telegraf agents.

However, you can enable the use of open source Telegraf. Be aware that if you enable the use of open source Telegraf, you must disable client certificate validation as open source Telegraf does not support client certificates.

Note: If you perform the following steps to enable the use of open source Telegraf, you may need to take additional steps to mitigate security risk. Such steps are network isolation and the use of iptables to deny all and allow only those trusted Telegraf hosts.


  1. Edit the /etc/httpd-south/httpd.conf file in a text editor.
  2. Uncomment the following lines:
    #uncomment the below line to allow opensource telegraf
    JkMount /opensource/* vcopsarc 
    #Open source telegraf Endpoint changes starts here
     <Location /opensource/default/metric>
                   SSLVerifyClient None
                  SSLOptions +StdEnvVars
                   SSLRenegBufferSize 1048600
    #Open source telegraf Endpoint changes ends here
  3. Restart Apache using the following command:
    systemctl restart httpd-south
