Enabling support for InfluxDBv2

Before we get started it is important that you know and understand that InfluxDBv2 support is currently alpha at best. All it provides is the sending of data to a InfluxDBv2 bucket. Due to the current changes that are constantly being made to InfluxDB itself then we cannot guarantee that your data will be ok so enabling this support is at your own risk!

It is also important to understand that InfluxDBv2 only supports the InfluxDBv2 API used in InfluxDB version 2.0 or higher. If you are looking to send data to any other version of InfluxDB than you should use the InfluxDB datastore instead.


  • InfluxDB >= 2.0

The setup of the above is completely out of scope here and we aren't really able to provide any help with this side of things.

What you don't get

  • Support for InfluxDB, we would highly recommend that you have some level of experience with these.

RRD will continue to function as normal so LibreNMS itself should continue to function as normal.



lnms config:set influxdbv2.enable true
lnms config:set influxdbv2.transport http
lnms config:set ''
lnms config:set influxdbv2.port 8086
lnms config:set influxdbv2.bucket 'librenms'
lnms config:set influxdbv2.token 'admin'
lnms config:set influxdbv2.allow_redirect true
lmns config:set influxdbv2.organization 'librenms'
lmns config:set influxdbv2.debug false
lmns config:set influxdbv2.groups-exclude ["group_name_1","group_name_2"]

The same data stored within rrd will be sent to InfluxDB and recorded. You can then create graphs within Grafana or InfluxDB to display the information you need.

Please note that polling will slow down when the poller isn't able to reach or write data to InfluxDBv2.
