Automatically Restarting Telegraf On Windows

Tracy Boggiano has a quick Powershell script to try starting Telegraf until it succeeds:

I’ve noticed on demo machines that sometimes Telegraf doesn’t start on the first try, and this seems to not happen on most of my production servers, but they have a lot more memory and CPU power. So I figured I would write a quick blog post and provide a way to set up a way to get the service to start when the machine is rebooted. This is a known issue that a user has offered a bounty to get it fixed so if you know some Go and have time, please check out the issue on Github.

Click through for the script.
