Apache Arrow Flight RPC clients

Flight RPC and Flight SQL clients are language-specific drivers that interact with databases using the Arrow in-memory format and the Flight RPC protocol. Apache Arrow Flight RPC and Flight SQL protocols define APIs for servers and clients.

Use InfluxDB v3 client libraries

We recommend using InfluxDB v3 client libraries for integrating InfluxDB v3 with your application code. Client libraries wrap Apache Arrow Flight clients and provide convenient methods for writing, querying, and processing data stored in InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated.

Flight RPC clients can use SQL or InfluxQL to query data stored in an InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated database. Using InfluxDB v3’s IOx-specific Flight RPC protocol, clients send a single DoGet() request to authenticate, query, and retrieve data.

Flight SQL clients use the Flight SQL protocol for querying an SQL database server. They can use SQL to query data stored in an InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated database, but they can’t use InfuxQL.

Clients are maintained by Apache Arrow projects or third-parties. For specifics about a Flight client, see the client’s GitHub repository.

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.
