JSON Protocol

Warning! This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB, which is no longer actively developed. InfluxDB v1.8 is the most recent stable version of InfluxDB.

The JSON write protocol is no longer a valid write protocol for InfluxDB.

The protocol was deprecated as of InfluxDB 0.9.1 and was disabled by default in InfluxDB 0.11. Line Protocol is the only recommended write protocol for InfluxDB 0.13.

For reasons behind its removal, 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.
