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

choco upgrade telegraf -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'1.23.0'" 

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

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.
