To write data to Vertica with Flux:

  1. Import the sql package.

  2. Pipe-forward data into sql.to() and provide the following parameters:

    • driverName: vertica or vertigo
    • dataSourceName: See data source name
    • table: Table to write to
    • batchSize: Number of parameters or columns that can be queued within each call to Exec (default is 10000)

  |> sql.to(
    driverName: "vertica",
    dataSourceName: "vertica://username:password@localhost:5433/dbname",
    table: "public.example_table"
  )

Vertica data source name

The vertica and vertigo drivers use the following DSN syntax (also known as a connection string):

vertica://<user>:<password>@<host>:<port>/<database>?<queryArgs>

The vertica and vertigo drivers use the vertica/vertica-sql-go implementation. For information about supported DSN query arguments, see the vertica/vertica-sql-go documentation.
