Create scrapable endpoints

InfluxDB scrapers can collect data from any HTTP(S)-accessible endpoint that returns data in the Prometheus data format. The links below provide information about the Prometheus data format and tools and clients that generate Prometheus-formatted metrics.

Prometheus Node Exporter

The Prometheus Node Exporter exposes a wide variety of hardware- and kernel-related metrics for *nix systems.

Prometheus client libraries

Prometheus client libraries instrument applications for each of their respective languages. Application metrics are output to an HTTP(S) endpoint where they can be scraped.

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.
