Set up 1.x monitoring dashboards

The following dashboards provide visualizations of performance metrics for InfluxDB open source (OSS), InfluxDB Enterprise, and Kapacitor.

Prebuilt dashboards

Chronograf provides prebuilt monitoring dashboards that use data from specific Telegraf input plugins. To view prebuilt dashboards:

  1. Open Chronograf and click Host List in the navigation bar.
  2. Each link in the Apps column is a prebuilt dashboard generated using metrics from Telegraf input plugins. Click a link to view the associated dashboard.

Import monitoring dashboards

Use the dashboards below to visualize and monitor key TICK stack metrics. Download the dashboard file and import it into Chronograf. For detailed instructions, see Importing a dashboard.

Monitor InfluxDB OSS

Use the InfluxDB OSS Monitor dashboard to monitor InfluxDB OSS in Chronograf.

  • Queries Executed Per Minute
  • HTTP Requests Per Minute
  • Points Throughput Per Minute by Hostname
  • Series Cardinality & Measurements by Database
  • HTTP Request Duration (99th %)
  • Heap Size
  • Shard Write Errors
  • Continuous Queries Executed Per Minute

Monitor InfluxDB Enterprise

Use the InfluxDB Enterprise Monitor dashboard to monitor InfluxDB Enterprise in Chronograf.

  • Anti-Entropy Errors & Jobs

Monitor Kapacitor

Use the Kapacitor Monitor dashboard to monitor Kapacitor in Chronograf.

Download Kapacitor Monitor dashboard

The Kapacitor Monitor dashboard requires the Telegraf mem, cpu, system, and kapacitor input plugins and contains the following cells:

  • Kapacitor Host RAM Usage
  • Kapacitor Host CPU Usage

InfluxDB Cloud backed by InfluxDB IOx

All InfluxDB Cloud organizations created on or after January 31, 2023 are backed by the new InfluxDB IOx storage engine. Check the right column of your InfluxDB Cloud organization homepage to see which InfluxDB storage engine you’re using.

If powered by IOx, this is the correct documentation.

If powered by TSM, see the TSM-based InfluxDB Cloud documentation.

InfluxDB Cloud backed by InfluxDB TSM

All InfluxDB Cloud organizations created on or after January 31, 2023 are backed by the new InfluxDB IOx storage engine which enables nearly unlimited series cardinality and SQL query support. Check the right column of your InfluxDB Cloud organization homepage to see which InfluxDB storage engine you’re using.

If powered by TSM, this is the correct documentation.

If powered by IOx, see the IOx-based InfluxDB Cloud documentation.

State of the InfluxDB Cloud (IOx) documentation

The new documentation for InfluxDB Cloud backed by InfluxDB IOx is a work in progress. We are adding new information and content almost daily. Thank you for your patience!
