influx - InfluxDB command line interface

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.0 is the latest stable version. See the equivalent InfluxDB v2.0 documentation: influx - InfluxDB command line interface.

The influx command line interface (CLI) provides an interactive shell for the HTTP API associated with influxd. Use influx to write data (manually or from a file), query data interactively, and view query output in different formats.
