InfluxDB - Time Series Database


InfluxDB is a time series database developed by InfluxData. It is possible to deploy a single instance without charge. To use the clustering features you will require a commercial license.


The recommendation is to use flash storage for InfluxDB. If docker is configured to use spinning disks by default, or you have some higher performance drives available, it may be desirable to control where the docker volume is located. This can be achieved by setting a path for influxdb_datadir_volume in /etc/kolla/globals.yml:

influxdb_datadir_volume: /mnt/ssd/influxdb/

The default is to use a named volume, influxdb.
