Python and influxdb

Simon Brennan bio photo By Simon Brennan

Recently, I discovered influxdb, a platform for time series data. Think rrd without the pain…

Trawling the net, I found it difficult to grab a straight forward, working example of how to write data to an influxdb database, along with a basic schema. So I developed my own in python. Check it out on github

The example writes fake data to an influxdb database, which can be graphed using Grafana.

Happy coding!
