How to run telegraf in background

I have a question on telegraf, may be someone would have a answer, though this is a grafana forumn,

I want to run telegraf in the background (i…, for ever) , even if i close my putty window. mine is a linux machine.

docker run has the -d argument so that it runs in background. how to run telegraf the same way

I figured it out i wrote a file called telegraf.service with below contents and saved it in location /etc/systemd/system/

Description=Telegraf Service



Then in gave the command sudo systemctl enable application.service

and then sudo systemctl start application.service
