kapacitor record query

The kapacitor record query command records the result of an InfluxQL query. Once the recording is stopped, the command outputs the recording ID. If no recording ID is specified, Kapacitor assigns a random ID.

The command requires the following:

  • InfluxQL query: Use the -query flag
  • Recording type: Use the -type flag and pass either batch or query

To replay the recording, see kapacitor replay.

-queryRequired: Query to record.
-typeRequired: Recording type (stream or batch)
-clusterNamed InfluxDB cluster or instance to query
-no-waitRun recording in the background
-recording-idID to assign to the recording


Record an InfluxQL query

influx record query \
  -query "SELECT temp, hum FROM db.rp.home" \
  -type batch

Record an InfluxQL query and assign a custom recording ID

influx record query \
  -query "SELECT temp, hum FROM db.rp.home" \
  -type batch \
  -recording-id example-query-rec

Record an InfluxQL query for a specific InfluxDB cluster

influx record query \
  -query "SELECT temp, hum FROM db.rp.home" \
  -type batch \
  -cluster influxdb-enterprise

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.
