SQL arithmetic operators

Limited availability

InfluxDB Clustered is currently 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.

Arithmetic operators take two numeric values (either literals or variables) and perform a calculation that returns a single numeric value.

OperatorDescription
+Addition
-Subtraction
*Multiplication
/Division
%Modulo

+

The + operator adds two operands together and returns the sum.

SELECT 1 + 2
int64(1) + int64(2)
3

-

The - operator subtracts the right operand from the left operand and returns the difference.

SELECT 4 - 2
int64(4) - int64(2)
2

*

The * operator multiplies two operands together and returns the product.

SELECT 2 * 3
int64(2) * int64(3)
6

/

The / operator divides the left operand by the right operand and returns the quotient.

SELECT 6 / 3
int64(6) / int64(3)
2

%

The % (modulo) operator divides the left operand by the right operand and returns the remainder. If the left operand is not divisible by the right operand, it returns the left operand.

SELECT 8 % 3
Int64(8) % Int64(3)
2
SELECT 3 % 8
Int64(3) % Int64(8)
3

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.
