influxd run

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.0 is the latest stable version. See the equivalent InfluxDB v2.0 documentation: influxd run.

The influxd run command is the default command for influxd. It starts and runs all the processes necessary for InfluxDB to function.


influxd run [flags]

Because run is the default command for influxd, the following commands are the same:

influxd run


-configPath to the configuration file. This defaults to the environment variable INFLUXDB_CONFIG_PATH, ~/.influxdb/influxdb.conf, or /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf if a file is present at either of these locations. Disable the automatic loading of a configuration file using the null device (such as /dev/null).
-pidfileWrite process ID to a file.
-cpuprofileWrite CPU profiling information to a file.
-memprofileWrite memory usage information to a file.
