Short Description
A server that accepts InfluxDB metrics via the HTTP API and exports them for Prometheus consumption
Full Description

InfluxDB Exporter

An exporter for metrics in the InfluxDB format used since 0.9.0. It collects
metrics in the line protocol via a HTTP API,
transforms them and exposes them for consumption by Prometheus.

If you are sending data to InfluxDB in Graphite or Collectd formats, see the graphite_exporter and collectd_exporter respectively.

This exporter is useful for exporting metrics from existing collectd setups, as well as for metrics which are not covered by the core Prometheus exporters such as the Node Exporter.

This exporter supports float, int and boolean fields. Tags are converted to Prometheus labels.

Example usage with Telegraf

The influxdb_exporter appears as a normal InfluxDB server. To use with Telegraf for example, put the following in your telegraf.conf:

  urls = ["http://localhost:9122"]

Note that Telegraf already supports outputing Prometheus metrics over HTTP via outputs.prometheus_client, which avoids having to also run the influxdb_exporter.
