Sample data

Sample datasets are used throughout the InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated documentation to demonstrate functionality. Use the following sample datasets to replicate provided examples.

Get started home sensor data

Includes hourly home sensor data used in the Get started with InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated guide. This dataset includes anomalous sensor readings and helps to demonstrate processing and alerting on time series data. To customize timestamps in the dataset, use the button in the lower right corner of the page. This lets you modify the sample dataset to stay within the retention period of the database you write it to.

Time Range

2022-01-01T08:00:00Z to 2022-01-01T20:00:00Z (Customizable)

  • home (measurement)
    • tags:
      • room
        • Kitchen
        • Living Room
    • fields:
