With InfluxDB 2.0 we added the ability to export a configuration of your entire stack, and import it again into another instance of InfluxDB. This includes your InfluxDB buckets, dashboards, queries, alerts and even Telegraf configurations. Since many people have the same or similar use cases, we wanted to provide a way for you to share your configurations with other users, and work together to enhance and improve them over time, just like you would any other open source project.

I’ve built a lot of InfluxDB servers in my time here, and I’ve built some pretty esoteric ones at that, but I think I’ve finally pulled off what can only be described as the World’s Smallest InfluxDB Server! Back in the summer of 2019, I saw a project on CrowdSupply.com for something called the ‘Giant Board’. It looked really, really cool! A complete Single Board Computer (SBC) that ran Linux, all in a Feather form factor. I immediately backed it!

Jupyter Notebooks are wonderful because they provide a way to share code, explanations, and visualizations in the same place. Notebooks add narrative to computation. The cells compartmentalize steps and reduce the fear or hesitation associated with editing code. In this way, notebooks act as an invitation for experimentation. Today, I want to extend that invitation and apply it to InfluxDB. In this post, we’ll learn how to query our system stats data from InfluxDB v2.0 using Flux.

At the end of 2019, we released a new Suricata input plugin with Telegraf 1.13.0. In this blog, I’ll talk about the the powerful combination of these two open source products — the importance of Suricata and why you should use Telegraf to monitor its performance. I wanted to start off first thanking Sascha Steinbiss for submitting this plugin. Here at InfluxData, we can’t tell you how much we value our open source community.

Today we’re excited to announce the general availability of InfluxDB Cloud for Google Cloud. With this new service, GCP users can now use our leading time series data platform on Google infrastructure. This lets you address a wide range of use cases: server monitoring, IoT sensor data tracking, real-time customer analytics, application performance metrics, network monitoring, security threat detection, and financial market analysis.

Everything related to how IT services are delivered and consumed is undergoing tremendous change. Monolithic architectures are being replaced by microservices-driven apps and the cloud- based infrastructure is being tied together and instrumented by DevOps processes.

Companies are committed to delivering on higher levels of customer satisfaction for their online services. Unfortunately, many organizations trying to support these initiatives take an interrupt-driven approach where they scramble to fix things when they break. However, to manage to these high levels of SLAs, you should take a structured approach in order to reduce the amount of unscheduled downtime by proactively monitoring and managing your systems.

This paper reviews how an IoT Data platform fits in with any IoT Architecture to manage the data requirements of every IoT implementation. It is based on the learnings from existing IoT practitioners that have adopted an IoT Data platform using InfluxData.

In this technical paper, we’ll compare the performance and features of InfluxDB 1.4.2 vs. Elasticsearch 5.6.3 for common time series workloads, specifically looking at the rates of data ingestion, on-disk data compression, and query performance. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of these technologies for their use case.

In this technical paper, we’ll explore the aspects of scaling clusters of the InfluxEnterprise product, primarily through the lens of write performance of InfluxDB Clusters. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of InfluxEnterprise for their use case, in addition to helping establish some rough guidelines for what those users should expect in terms of write performance in a real-world environment.

Paul will talk about the long-term vision for Flux the language as well as InfluxDB 2.0, Telegraf 2.0 and beyond. He’ll talk about why we’ve decided to create a language, how that plays into polyglot persistence & purpose-built time series databases, and how it enables more complex analytics and processing workloads to drive insights from data not just in InfluxDB, but everywhere.

This talk will show how to use Tasks, Flux, dashboards and monitoring and alerting in InfluxDB 2.0 to create an external service or website monitor. It’ll tie all the work we’ve been doing for the last two years together in a simple example for everyone to use as a template for their own custom monitoring applications built on top of the InfluxDB 2.0 platform.

This talk will go into the details of migrating from TICK to InfluxDB 2.0. We’ll touch on data migration, what to consider when migrating dashboards from InfluxQL to Flux, and considerations for moving from Kapacitor and TICKscript to Tasks and Flux.
