kapacitor record stream

The kapacitor record stream command records the result of a Kapacitor stream task. 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:

  • Recording duration: Use the -duration flag
  • Task ID: Use the -task flag

To replay the recording, see kapacitor replay.


kapacitor record stream [flags]


-durationRequired: How long to record the data stream
-no-waitRun recording in the background
-recording-idID to assign to the recording
-taskRequired: Task ID (uses the dbrp value in the task)


Record a stream task

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.
