InfluxDB reference

Retention policies

The default database is created with a default retention policy of 30 days. You might want to adjust this by e.g. creating a new default retention policy with 1 year retention:

create retention policy "365d" on "defaultdb" duration 365d replication 1 shard duration 1w default

Datasource in Grafana

Let us know in #nais if you want your InfluxDB to be exposed in Grafana. This means that everyone can access your data.

Access from laptop

With Naisdevice you have access to the aiven-prod gateway. This is a JITA (just in time access) gateway, so you need to describe why, but the access is automatically given.

influx -username avnadmin -password foo -host -port 26482 -ssl

PS: Remember to use Influxdb CLI pre v2. For example v1.8.3.
