Monitor Raspberry Pi

Use the Raspberry Pi Monitoring template to monitor your Raspberry Pi 4 or 400 Linux system.

The Raspberry Pi template includes the following:

Apply the template

  1. Use the influx CLI to run the following command:

    influx apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/influxdata/community-templates/master/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-system.yml
    

    For more information, see influx apply.

  2. Install Telegraf on your Raspberry Pi and ensure your Raspberry Pi has network access to the InfluxDB Cloud API.

  3. Add the following environment variables to your Telegraf environment:

    export INFLUX_HOST=http://localhost:8086
    export INFLUX_TOKEN=mY5uP3rS3cr3T70keN
    export INFLUX_ORG=example-org
    
  4. Start Telegraf.

View the incoming data

  1. In the InfluxDB user interface (UI), select Boards (Dashboards).

  2. Click the Raspberry Pi System link to open your dashboard, then select rasp-pi as your bucket and select your linux_host.

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.
