influx ping

Works with InfluxDB OSS 2.x

The influx ping command works with InfluxDB OSS 2.x, but does not work with InfluxDB Cloud.

The influx ping command checks the health of a running InfluxDB instance by querying the /health endpoint. It does not require an API token.

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.
