Create an InfluxDB scraper

InfluxDB scrapers collect data from specified targets at regular intervals, then write the scraped data to an InfluxDB bucket. Scrapers can collect data from any HTTP(S)-accessible endpoint that provides data in the Prometheus data format.

Create a scraper in the InfluxDB UI

  1. In the navigation menu on the left, select Data (Load Data) > Scrapers.

  2. Click Create Scraper.

  3. Enter a Name for the scraper.

  4. Select a Bucket to store the scraped data.

  5. Enter the Target URL to scrape. The default URL value is http://localhost:8086/metrics, which provides InfluxDB-specific metrics in the Prometheus data format.

  6. Click Create.

The new scraper will begin scraping data after approximately 10 seconds, then continue scraping in 10 second intervals.

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.
