InfluxDB supports the OpenTSDB “telnet” protocol. When OpenTSDB support is enabled, InfluxDB can act as a drop-in replacement for your OpenTSDB system.
An example input point, and how it is processed, is shown below.
put sys.cpu.user 1356998400 42.5 host=webserver01 cpu=0
When InfluxDB receives this data, a point is written to the database.
The point’s Measurement is
sys.cpu.user, the timestamp is
1356998400, and the value is
The point is also tagged with
Tags allow fast and efficient queries to be performed on your data.
