JSON Protocol

Warning! This page documents an old version of InfluxDB, which is no longer actively developed. InfluxDB v1.2 is the most recent stable version of InfluxDB.

The JSON write protocol is deprecated as of InfluxDB 0.9.1. It is still present in InfluxDB 0.10 but it will be removed no later than the InfluxDB 1.0 release. The line protocol is the only recommended write protocol for InfluxDB 0.10.

For reasons behind the deprecation, please see the comments on the line protocol pull request, particularly the comments on JSON serialization CPU costs and on the ease of use concerns.
