I have something writing data on serial port (/dev/serial0) every second.
I have a shell script able to read serial port line by line and convert data to telegraf/influxdb input format.

What do I do from now ? Can I use the "tail" input plugin with this ? how ? (I don't want to write all datas in a file to be able to read them with the tail plugin, I'd like a real stream).
