NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade telegraf -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade telegraf -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Telegraf is a plugin-driven server agent for collecting and reporting
metrics, and is the first piece of the TICK stack. Telegraf has plugins to source a
variety of metrics directly from the system it’s running on, pull metrics from third
party APIs, or even listen for metrics via a statsd and Kafka consumer services. It
also has output plugins to send metrics to a variety of other datastores, services,
and message queues, including InfluxDB, Graphite, OpenTSDB, Datadog, Librato, Kafka,
MQTT, NSQ, and many others.

Telegraf is installed under %ProgramFiles%\telegraf.
