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 deprecated as of InfluxDB 0.9.1. It is still present but it will be removed when InfluxDB 1.0 is released. The line protocol is the primary write protocol for InfluxDB 0.9.1+.

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.
