Explore your schema with SQL

When working with the InfluxDB SQL implementation, a bucket is equivalent to a database, a measurement is structured as a table, and time, fields, and tags are structured as columns.

List measurements in a bucket

Use SHOW TABLES to list measurements in your InfluxDB bucket.

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.
