JSON Protocol

Warning! This page documents an old version of InfluxDB, which is no longer actively developed. InfluxDB v1.4 is the most recent stable version of InfluxDB.

The JSON write protocol is deprecated as of InfluxDB 0.9.1. It is disabled by default in InfluxDB 0.11 and will be removed in the next release. You can turn it back on in 0.11. Line Protocol is the only recommended write protocol for InfluxDB 0.11.

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.
