Fields

url

A URL of the format [https|http|udp]://host:port to the InfluxDB host.

Type: string

db

The name of the database to use.

Type: string

tls

Custom TLS settings can be used to override system defaults.

Type: object

tls.enabled

Whether custom TLS settings are enabled.

Type: bool

Default: false

tls.skip_cert_verify

Whether to skip server side certificate verification.

Type: bool

Default: false

tls.enable_renegotiation

Whether to allow the remote server to repeatedly request renegotiation. Enable this option if you’re seeing the error message local error: tls: no renegotiation.

Type: bool

Default: false Requires version 3.45.0 or newer

tls.root_cas

An optional root certificate authority to use. This is a string, representing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas: |-
  -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
  ...
  -----END CERTIFICATE-----

tls.root_cas_file

An optional path of a root certificate authority file to use. This is a file, often with a .pem extension, containing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas_file: ./root_cas.pem

tls.client_certs

A list of client certificates to use. For each certificate either the fields cert and key, or cert_file and key_file should be specified, but not both.

Type: array

Default: []

# Examples

client_certs:
  - cert: foo
    key: bar

client_certs:
  - cert_file: ./example.pem
    key_file: ./example.key

tls.client_certs[].cert

A plain text certificate to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key

A plain text certificate key to use.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].cert_file

The path of a certificate to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key_file

The path of a certificate key to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].password

A plain text password for when the private key is password encrypted in PKCS#1 or PKCS#8 format. The obsolete pbeWithMD5AndDES-CBC algorithm is not supported for the PKCS#8 format. Warning: Since it does not authenticate the ciphertext, it is vulnerable to padding oracle attacks that can let an attacker recover the plaintext.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

password: foo

password: ${KEY_PASSWORD}

username

A username (when applicable).

Type: string

Default: ""

password

A password (when applicable).

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

include

Optional additional metrics to collect, enabling these metrics may have some performance implications as it acquires a global semaphore and does stoptheworld().

Type: object

include.runtime

A duration string indicating how often to poll and collect runtime metrics. Leave empty to disable this metric

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

runtime: 1m

include.debug_gc

A duration string indicating how often to poll and collect GC metrics. Leave empty to disable this metric.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

debug_gc: 1m

interval

A duration string indicating how often metrics should be flushed.

Type: string

Default: "1m"

ping_interval

A duration string indicating how often to ping the host.

Type: string

Default: "20s"

precision

[ns|us|ms|s] timestamp precision passed to write api.

Type: string

Default: "s"

timeout

How long to wait for response for both ping and writing metrics.

Type: string

Default: "5s"

tags

Global tags added to each metric.

Type: object

Default: {}

# Examples

tags:
  hostname: localhost
  zone: danger

retention_policy

Sets the retention policy for each write.

Type: string

write_consistency

[any|one|quorum|all] sets write consistency when available.

Type: string
