Full Description


This image contains a sensible default configuration of InfluxDB and Grafana. It explicitly doesn't bundle an example dashboard.

Using the Dashboard

Once your container is running all you need to do is open your browser pointing to the host/port you just published and play with the dashboard at your wish. We hope that you have a lot of fun with this image and that it serves it's purpose of making your life easier.

Building the image yourself

The Dockerfile and supporting configuration files are available in this Github repository. This comes specially handy if you want to change any of the InfluxDB or Grafana settings, or simply if you want to know how the image was built.
The repo also has build, start and stop scripts to make your workflow more pleasant.

Configuring the settings

The container exposes the following ports by default:

  • 80: Grafana web interface.
  • 8083: InfluxDB Admin web interface.
  • 8084: InfluxDB HTTPS API (not usable by default).
  • 8086: InfluxDB HTTP API.

To start a container with your custom config: see start script.

To change ports, consider the following:

  • 80: edit Dockerfile, ngingx/nginx.conf and start script.
  • 8083: edit: Dockerfile, influxDB/config.toml and start script.
  • 8084: edit: to be announced.
  • 8086: edit: Dockerfile, influxDB/config.toml, grafana/config.js, and start script.

Running container under boot2docker on Mac OS X

Currently, there is an issue with boot2docker dicussed here. To bypass this, change the last line in start script to the following to start the container:

docker run -d -p 80:80 -p 8083:8083 -p 8084:8084 -p 8086:8086 --name grafana-influxdb_con grafana_influxdb

InfluxDB is configured by default with two databases. grafana DB for storing your Dashboard and data DB for storing your measurements. You can edit all default passwords in Dockerfile. If you wanna edit DB names, users and passwords, have a look at the following files: grafana/config.js,, and Dockerfile

HTTPS API wasn't tested yet, that's why it isn't configured. Some boilerplate code can be found in Dockerfile and Needs testing and possibly more.
