Execute queries

Use tools and libraries to query data stored in an InfluxDB Cloud Serverless bucket.

InfluxDB v3 supports the following APIs and languages for querying data:

  • Flight+RPC with SQL or InfluxQL. Use InfluxDB client libraries and Flight+RPC clients to query with SQL or InfluxQL and retrieve data in Arrow in-memory format.
  • Flight SQL with SQL or InfluxQL. Use Flight SQL clients to query with SQL or InfluxQL and retrieve data in Arrow in-memory format.
  • HTTP /query endpoint for InfluxDB v1 compatibility when you bring workloads and code from v1.x to v3. Use the /query endpoint with InfluxQL and tools such as Telegraf, HTTP clients, and InfluxDB v1 client libraries to query and retrieve data in JSON or CSV format.

/api/v2/query endpoint can’t query InfluxDB v3

InfluxDB Cloud Serverless doesn’t support the InfluxDB v2 HTTP /api/v2/query endpoint and isn’t optimized for the Flux query language. Use SQL or InfluxQL to query data stored in InfluxDB v3.

Introducing InfluxDB Clustered

A highly available InfluxDB 3.0 cluster on your own infrastructure.

InfluxDB Clustered is a highly available InfluxDB 3.0 cluster built for high write and query workloads on your own infrastructure.

InfluxDB Clustered is currently in limited availability and is only available to a limited group of InfluxData customers. If interested in being part of the limited access group, please contact the InfluxData Sales team.

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.
