OpenTSDB

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2 is the latest stable version.

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 42.5. The point is also tagged with host=webserver01 and cpu=0. Tags allow fast and efficient queries to be performed on your data.

To learn more about enabling OpenTSDB support, check the example configuration file.

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
