Monitor the InfluxData Platform

One of the primary use cases for the InfluxData Platform is as server and infrastructure monitoring solution. No matter what type of data you’re using the platform to collect and store, it’s important to monitor the health of your stack and identify any potential issues.

To monitor the InfluxDB 2.0 platform, see Monitor InfluxDB 2.0.

To monitor the InfluxData 1.x platform, see the following pages for information about setting up a 1.x TICK stack that monitors another OSS or Enterprise TICK stack. They cover different potential monitoring strategies and visualizing the monitoring data in a way that makes it easy to recognize, alert on, and address anomalies as they happen.

Leverage InfluxDB Cloud and pre-built InfluxDB templates to monitoring your InfluxDB setup. Start using InfluxDB Cloud at no cost with the Free Plan. Use it as much and as long as you like within the plan’s rate-limits. Limits are designed to let you monitor 5-10 sensors, stacks or servers comfortably. Monitoring a single InfluxDB OSS instance or even a modest InfluxDB Enterprise cluster should easily fit within the free plan limits. If you exceed the plan limits because of high resolution data or longer data retention, upgrade to the pay-as-you-go plan.

Start monitoring your InfluxDB instance by signing up for an InfluxDB Cloud account.
