InfluxDB Enterprise tools
Use the following tools to work with InfluxDB Enterprise:
The Flux Visual Studio Code (VS Code) extension provides Flux syntax highlighting, autocompletion, and a direct InfluxDB OSS server integration that lets you run Flux scripts natively and show results in VS Code.
The influx command line interface (CLI) includes commands to manage many aspects of InfluxDB, including databases, organizations, users, and tasks.
Usage influx [flags] Flags Flag Description -version Display the version and exit -url-prefix Path to add to the URL after the host and port. Specifies a custom endpoint to connect to. -host HTTP address of InfluxDB (default: http://localhost:8086) -port Port to connect to -socket Unix socket to connect to -database Database to connect to the server -password Password to connect to the server.
influx_inspect commands to manage InfluxDB disks and shards.
The influxd daemon starts and runs all the processes necessary for InfluxDB to function.
Use the influxd-ctl tool to manage InfluxDB Enterprise clusters
Use the InfluxDB API endpoints to run queries, write data, check server status, and troubleshoot by tracking HTTP client requests, collecting server statistics, and using Go “pprof” profiles.
Use the InfluxDB inch tool to test InfluxDB performance. Adjust the number of points and tag values to test ingesting different tag cardinalities.
Configure Grafana to query and visualize data from InfluxDB Enterprise v1.8.
Tools built for InfluxDB OSS v1.8 also work with InfluxDB Enterprise v1.8.
