Third-party technologies

A number of third-party technologies can be configured to send line protocol directly to InfluxDB.

If you’re using any of the following technologies, check out the handy links below to configure these technologies to write data to InfluxDB (no additional software to download or install):

Configure Vector

  1. On the Vector.dev docs site, see the InfluxDB Metrics Sink page.
  2. Under Configuration, click v2 to view configuration settings.
  3. Scroll down to How It Works for more detail.

Configure Apache NiFi

See the InfluxDB Processors for Apache NiFi Readme for details.

Configure OpenHAB

See the InfluxDB Persistence Readme for details.

Configure Apache JMeter

To configure Apache JMeter, complete the following steps in InfluxDB and JMeter.

In InfluxDB
  1. Find the name of your organization (needed to create a bucket and token).
  2. Create a bucket using the influx CLI and name it jmeter.
  3. Create a token.
In JMeter
  1. Create a Backend Listener using the InfluxDBBackendListenerClient implementation.
  2. In the Backend Listener implementation field, enter:

    org.apache.jmeter.visualizers.backend.influxdb.influxdbBackendListenerClient
    
  3. Under Parameters, specify the following:

    • influxdbMetricsSender:

      org.apache.jmeter.visualizers.backend.influxdb.HttpMetricsSender
      
    • influxdbUrl: (include the bucket and org you created in InfluxDB)

      http://localhost:9999/api/v2/write?org=my-org&bucket=jmeter
      
    • application: InfluxDB2

    • influxdbToken: your InfluxDB authentication token

    • Include additional parameters as needed.

  4. Click Add to add the InfluxDBBackendListenerClient implementation.

Configure FluentD

See the influxdb-plugin-fluent Readme for details.
