Adding physical hardware temperatures in telegraf/influxdb/grafana / 2021-09-11

2021-09-11 Adding physical hardware temperatures in telegraf/influxdb/grafana 1 week ago
Grafana dashboard with host cpu temperatures After starting the collection of a lot of the system data I wanted with telegraf/influxdb/grafana one small part was missing: the temperature sensors. I like these, so I had a look and found the inputs.temp plugin in telegraf which is normally disabled.

Enabling it on hosts that have actual hardware to measure worked ok. On the Raspberry Pi systems it gives one temperature:
> SHOW TAG VALUES ON "telegraf" WITH key="sensor" WHERE host='joy'
name: temp
key    value
---    -----
sensor cpu_thermal_input
On the home server conway it gives quite a lot of temperatures:
> SHOW TAG VALUES ON "telegraf" WITH key="sensor" WHERE host='conway'
name: temp
key    value
---    -----
sensor coretemp_core0_crit
sensor coretemp_core0_critalarm
sensor coretemp_core0_input
sensor coretemp_core0_max
sensor coretemp_core1_crit
sensor coretemp_core1_critalarm
sensor coretemp_core1_input
sensor coretemp_core1_max
sensor coretemp_core2_crit
sensor coretemp_core2_critalarm
sensor coretemp_core2_input
sensor coretemp_core2_max
sensor coretemp_core3_crit
sensor coretemp_core3_critalarm
sensor coretemp_core3_input
sensor coretemp_core3_max
sensor coretemp_core4_crit
sensor coretemp_core4_critalarm
sensor coretemp_core4_input
sensor coretemp_core4_max
sensor coretemp_core5_crit
sensor coretemp_core5_critalarm
sensor coretemp_core5_input
sensor coretemp_core5_max
sensor coretemp_physicalid0_crit
sensor coretemp_physicalid0_critalarm
sensor coretemp_physicalid0_input
sensor coretemp_physicalid0_max
For the dashboard showing all relevant temperatures for a system this is a bit overkill and makes the dashboard hard to read. Solution: go for all the temperature sensors that end in 'input', with the variable in the dashboard defined as 'ending in input':
> SHOW TAG VALUES ON "telegraf"  WITH key="sensor" WHERE host='conway' AND sensor=~/input$/
name: temp
key    value
---    -----
sensor coretemp_core0_input
sensor coretemp_core1_input
sensor coretemp_core2_input
sensor coretemp_core3_input
sensor coretemp_core4_input
sensor coretemp_core5_input
sensor coretemp_physicalid0_input
So far this works with all physical systems.
