influxd run

See the equivalent InfluxDB v2 documentation: influxd run.

The influxd run command is the default command for influxd. It starts and runs all the processes necessary for InfluxDB to function.

Usage

influxd run [flags]

Because run is the default command for influxd, the following commands are the same:

influxd
influxd run

Flags

FlagDescription
-configPath to the configuration file. This defaults to the environment variable INFLUXDB_CONFIG_PATH, ~/.influxdb/influxdb.conf, or /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf if a file is present at either of these locations. Disable the automatic loading of a configuration file using the null device (such as /dev/null).

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
