What is Telegraf?
Telegraf is a metric collection daemon that can collect metrics from a wide array of inputs and write them into a wide array of outputs. It is plugin-driven for both collection and output of data so it is easily extendable. It is written in Go, which means that it is a compiled and standalone binary that can be executed on any system with no need for external dependencies, no npm, pip, gem, or other package management tools required.

Said about Telegraf as an alternative
Like collectd, telegraf is a tiny agent for monitoring a system and passing the data to a larger database (typically running on another central server). Telegraf is written is go, so is secure and easy to install. It ya support for FreeBSD, Linux, Windows, etc. making it very versatile. The InfluxDB database it writes to is the best time-series database in the business.
