Parameters

start

(Required) Earliest time to include in results.

stop

(Required) Latest time to include in results.

host

InfluxDB Cloud region URL. Default is "".

(Required if executed outside of your InfluxDB Cloud organization or region).

orgID

InfluxDB Cloud organization ID. Default is "".

(Required if executed outside of your InfluxDB Cloud organization or region).

token

InfluxDB Cloud API token. Default is "".

(Required if executed outside of your InfluxDB Cloud organization or region).

raw

Return raw, high resolution usage data instead of downsampled usage data. Default is false.

usage.from() can query the following time ranges:

Data resolution Maximum time range
raw 1 hour
downsampled 30 days

Examples

Query downsampled usage data for your InfluxDB Cloud organization

import "experimental/usage"
import "influxdata/influxdb/secrets"

token = secrets.get(key: "INFLUX_TOKEN")

usage.from(start: -30d, stop: now())

Query raw usage data for your InfluxDB Cloud organization

import "experimental/usage"
import "influxdata/influxdb/secrets"

token = secrets.get(key: "INFLUX_TOKEN")

usage.from(start: -1h, stop: now(), raw: true)

Query downsampled usage data for a different InfluxDB Cloud organization

import "experimental/usage"
import "influxdata/influxdb/secrets"

token = secrets.get(key: "INFLUX_TOKEN")

usage.from(
    start: -30d,
    stop: now(),
    host: "https://us-west-2-1.aws.cloud2.influxdata.com",
    orgID: "x000X0x0xx0X00x0",
    token: token,
)

Query number of bytes in requests to the /api/v2/write endpoint

import "experimental/usage"

usage.from(start: -30d, stop: now())
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "http_request")
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r._field == "req_bytes")
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r.endpoint == "/api/v2/write")
    |> group(columns: ["_time"])
    |> sum()
    |> group()

Query number of bytes returned from the /api/v2/query endpoint

import "experimental/usage"

usage.from(start: -30d, stop: now())
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "http_request")
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r._field == "resp_bytes")
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r.endpoint == "/api/v2/query")
    |> group(columns: ["_time"])
    |> sum()
    |> group()

Query the query count for InfluxDB Cloud query endpoints

The following query returns query counts for the following query endpoints:

  • /api/v2/query: Flux queries
  • /query: InfluxQL queries
import "experimental/usage"

usage.from(start: -30d, stop: now())
    |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "query_count")
    |> sort(columns: ["_time"])

Compare usage metrics to organization usage limits

The following query compares the amount of data written to and queried from your InfluxDB Cloud organization to your organization’s rate limits. It appends a limitReached column to each row that indicates if your rate limit was exceeded.

import "experimental/usage"

limits = usage.limits()

checkLimit = (tables=<-, limit) =>
    tables
        |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with _value: r._value / 1000, limit: int(v: limit) * 60 * 5}))
        |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with limitReached: r._value > r.limit}))

read =
    usage.from(start: -30d, stop: now())
        |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "http_request")
        |> filter(fn: (r) => r._field == "resp_bytes")
        |> filter(fn: (r) => r.endpoint == "/api/v2/query")
        |> group(columns: ["_time"])
        |> sum()
        |> group()
        |> checkLimit(limit: limits.rate.readKBs)

write =
    usage.from(start: -30d, stop: now())
        |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "http_request")
        |> filter(fn: (r) => r._field == "req_bytes")
        |> filter(fn: (r) => r.endpoint == "/api/v2/write")
        |> group(columns: ["_time"])
        |> sum()
        |> group()
        |> checkLimit(limit: limits.rate.writeKBs)

union(tables: [read, write])

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
