We strongly suggest using the latest Telegraf version 1.0.1

I am not sure I understand the question correctly. When installed inside a 
container, Telegraf will normally collect data for the container itself.

It is possible to collect host metrics from inside the container though, by 
exposing etc,sys,proc,var volumes. See the following example:

docker run -d --hostname=name -e "HOST_PROC=/rootfs/proc" -e 
"HOST_SYS=/rootfs/sys" -e "HOST_ETC=/rootfs/etc" -v 
/var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock:ro -v /sys:/rootfs/sys:ro -v 
/proc:/rootfs/proc:ro -v /etc:/rootfs/etc:ro telegraf

Remember to include the version number!
