Use the influx query command
influx query command to query data in InfluxDB using Flux.
Pass Flux queries to the command as either a file or via stdin.
Run a query from a file
influx query --file /path/to/query.flux
Pass raw Flux via stdin pipe
influx query - # Return to open the pipe data = from(bucket: "example-bucket") |> range(start: -10m) # ... # Linux & macOS: <ctrl-d> to close the pipe and submit the command # Windows: <enter>, then <ctrl-d>, then <enter> to close the pipe and submit the command
Remove unnecessary columns in large datasets
When using the
influx query command to query and download large datasets,
drop columns such as
_stop to optimize the download file size.
// ... |> drop(columns: ["_start", "_stop"])
