Query MariaDB

To query MariaDB with Flux:

  1. Import the sql package.

  2. Use sql.from() and provide the following parameters:

    • driverName: mysql
    • dataSourceName: See data source name
    • query: SQL query to execute
import "sql"

sql.from(
  driverName: "mysql",
  dataSourceName: "user:password@tcp(localhost:3306)/db",
  query: "SELECT * FROM example_table"
)

MariaDB data source name

The mysql driver uses the following data source name (DSN) syntax (also known as a connection string):

username:password@tcp(localhost:3306)/dbname?param=value

MariaDB to Flux data type conversion

sql.from() converts MariaDB data types to Flux data types.

MariaDB data type Flux data type
INT, BIGINT, SMALLINT, TINYINT int
FLOAT, DOUBLE float
DATETIME time
STRING string

All other MariaDB data types are converted to strings.
