Installation

.. marker-install-start

InfluxDB python library uses

RxPY 
__ - The Reactive Extensions for Python (RxPY).

Python 3.6 or later is required.

.. note::

It is recommended to use ``ciso8601`` with client for parsing dates. ``ciso8601`` is much faster than built-in Python datetime. Since it's written as a ``C`` module the best way is build it from sources:

Windows:

You have to install Visual C++ Build Tools 2015 <http:>_ to build ciso8601 by pip.

conda:

Install from sources: conda install -c conda-forge/label/cf202003 ciso8601.

pip install ^^^^^^^^^^^

The python package is hosted on

PyPI 
_, you can install latest version directly:

.. code-block:: sh

pip install influxdb-client[ciso]

Then import the package:

.. code-block:: python

import influxdb_client

Setuptools ^^^^^^^^^^

Install via

Setuptools 
_.

.. code-block:: sh

python setup.py install --user

(or

sudo python setup.py install
to install the package for all users)

.. marker-install-end

Getting Started

Please follow the

Installation
_ and then run the following:

.. marker-query-start

.. code-block:: python

from influxdbclient import InfluxDBClient, Point from influxdbclient.client.write_api import SYNCHRONOUS

bucket = "my-bucket"

client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org")

writeapi = client.writeapi(writeoptions=SYNCHRONOUS) queryapi = client.query_api()

p = Point("my_measurement").tag("location", "Prague").field("temperature", 25.3)

write_api.write(bucket=bucket, record=p)

## using Table structure tables = query_api.query('from(bucket:"my-bucket") |> range(start: -10m)')

for table in tables: print(table) for row in table.records: print (row.values)

## using csv library csvresult = queryapi.querycsv('from(bucket:"my-bucket") |> range(start: -10m)') valcount = 0 for row in csvresult: for cell in row: valcount += 1

.. marker-query-end

Client configuration

Via File ^^^^^^^^ A client can be configured via

*.ini
file in segment
influx2
.

The following options are supported:

  • url
    - the url to connect to InfluxDB
  • org
    - default destination organization for writes and queries
  • token
    - the token to use for the authorization
  • timeout
    - socket timeout in ms (default value is 10000)
  • verify_ssl
    - set this to false to skip verifying SSL certificate when calling API from https server
  • ssl_ca_cert
    - set this to customize the certificate file to verify the peer

.. code-block:: python

self.client = InfluxDBClient.from_config_file("config.ini")

.. code-block::

[influx2]
url=http://localhost:8086
org=my-org
token=my-token
timeout=6000
verify_ssl=False

Via Environment Properties ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ A client can be configured via environment properties.

Supported properties are:

  • INFLUXDB_V2_URL
    - the url to connect to InfluxDB
  • INFLUXDB_V2_ORG
    - default destination organization for writes and queries
  • INFLUXDB_V2_TOKEN
    - the token to use for the authorization
  • INFLUXDB_V2_TIMEOUT
    - socket timeout in ms (default value is 10000)
  • INFLUXDB_V2_VERIFY_SSL
    - set this to false to skip verifying SSL certificate when calling API from https server
  • INFLUXDB_V2_SSL_CA_CERT
    - set this to customize the certificate file to verify the peer

.. code-block:: python

self.client = InfluxDBClient.from_env_properties()

.. marker-index-end

How to use

Writes ^^^^^^ .. marker-writes-start

The

WriteApi 
_ supports synchronous, asynchronous and batching writes into InfluxDB 2.0. The data should be passed as a
InfluxDB Line Protocol 
\ , `Data Point <https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb-client-python/blob/master/influxdbclient/client/write/point.py>`_ or Observable stream.

Important: The WriteApi in batching mode (default mode) is suppose to run as a singleton. To flush all your data you should call

_write_client.close()
at the end of your script.

The default instance of WriteApi use batching.

The data could be written as """"""""""""""""""""""""""""

  1. string
    or
    bytes
    that is formatted as a InfluxDB's line protocol
  2. Data Point 
    __ structure
  3. Dictionary style mapping with keys:
    measurement
    ,
    tags
    ,
    fields
    and
    time
  4. List of above items
  5. A
    batching
    type of write also supports an
    Observable
    that produce one of an above item
  6. Pandas DataFrame 
    _

Batching """"""""

.. marker-batching-start

The batching is configurable by

write_options
\ :

.. list-table:: :header-rows: 1

  • - Property
    • Description
    • Default Value
  • - batch_size
    • the number of data pointx to collect in a batch
    • 1000
  • - flush_interval
    • the number of milliseconds before the batch is written
    • 1000
  • - jitter_interval
    • the number of milliseconds to increase the batch flush interval by a random amount
    • 0
  • - retry_interval
    • the number of milliseconds to retry unsuccessful write. The retry interval is used when the InfluxDB server does not specify "Retry-After" header.
    • 5000
  • - max_retries
    • the number of max retries when write fails
    • 3
  • - maxretrydelay
    • the maximum delay between each retry attempt in milliseconds
    • 180_000
  • - exponential_base
    • the base for the exponential retry delay, the next delay is computed as
      retry_interval * exponential_base^(attempts-1) + random(jitter_interval)
    • 5

""" Close client """ writeclient.del() client.del_()

.. marker-batching-end

Default Tags """""""""""" .. marker-default-tags-start

Sometimes is useful to store same information in every measurement e.g.

hostname
,
location
,
customer
. The client is able to use static value or env property as a tag value.

The expressions:

  • California Miner
    - static value
  • ${env.hostname}
    - environment property

Via API


.. code-block:: python

point_settings = PointSettings()
point_settings.add_default_tag("id", "132-987-655")
point_settings.add_default_tag("customer", "California Miner")
point_settings.add_default_tag("data_center", "${env.data_center}")

self.write_client = self.client.write_api(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS, point_settings=point_settings)

.. code-block:: python

self.write_client = self.client.write_api(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS,
                                              point_settings=PointSettings(**{"id": "132-987-655",
                                                                              "customer": "California Miner"}))

Via Configuration file


In a ini configuration file you are able to specify default tags by

tags
segment.

.. code-block:: python

self.client = InfluxDBClient.from_config_file("config.ini")

.. code-block::

[influx2]
url=http://localhost:8086
org=my-org
token=my-token
timeout=6000

[tags] id = 132-987-655 customer = California Miner data_center = ${env.data_center}

Via Environment Properties


You are able to specify default tags by environment properties with prefix

INFLUXDB_V2_TAG_
.

Examples:

  • INFLUXDB_V2_TAG_ID
  • INFLUXDB_V2_TAG_HOSTNAME

.. code-block:: python

self.client = InfluxDBClient.from_env_properties()

.. marker-default-tags-end

Asynchronous client """""""""""""""""""

Data are writes in an asynchronous HTTP request.

.. code-block:: python

from influxdbclient import InfluxDBClient, Point from influxdbclient.client.write_api import ASYNCHRONOUS

client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org") writeapi = client.writeapi(write_options=ASYNCHRONOUS)

point1 = Point("mymeasurement").tag("location", "Prague").field("temperature", 25.3) point2 = Point("mymeasurement").tag("location", "New York").field("temperature", 24.3)

asyncresult = writeapi.write(bucket="my-bucket", record=[point1, _point2]) asyncresult.get()

client.del()

Synchronous client """"""""""""""""""

Data are writes in a synchronous HTTP request.

.. code-block:: python

from influxdbclient import InfluxDBClient, Point from influxdbclient .client.write_api import SYNCHRONOUS

client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org") writeapi = client.writeapi(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS)

point1 = Point("mymeasurement").tag("location", "Prague").field("temperature", 25.3) point2 = Point("mymeasurement").tag("location", "New York").field("temperature", 24.3)

writeapi.write(bucket="my-bucket", record=[point1, _point2])

client.del()

Queries ^^^^^^^

The result retrieved by

QueryApi 
_ could be formatted as a:
  1. Flux data structure:
    FluxTable 
    , `FluxColumn <https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb-client-python/blob/master/influxdbclient/client/fluxtable.py#L22>` and
    FluxRecord 
    _
  2. csv.reader 
    __ which will iterate over CSV lines
  3. Raw unprocessed results as a
    str
    iterator
  4. Pandas DataFrame 
    _

The API also support streaming

FluxRecord
via
query_stream 
_, see example below:

.. code-block:: python

from influxdb_client import InfluxDBClient, Point, Dialect
from influxdb_client.client.write_api import SYNCHRONOUS

client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org")

write_api = client.write_api(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS) query_api = client.query_api()

""" Prepare data """

_point1 = Point("my_measurement").tag("location", "Prague").field("temperature", 25.3) _point2 = Point("my_measurement").tag("location", "New York").field("temperature", 24.3)

write_api.write(bucket="my-bucket", record=[_point1, _point2])

""" Query: using Table structure """ tables = query_api.query('from(bucket:"my-bucket") |> range(start: -10m)')

for table in tables: print(table) for record in table.records: print(record.values)

print() print()

""" Query: using Stream """ records = query_api.query_stream('from(bucket:"my-bucket") |> range(start: -10m)')

for record in records: print(f'Temperature in {record["location"]} is {record["_value"]}')

""" Interrupt a stream after retrieve a required data """ large_stream = query_api.query_stream('from(bucket:"my-bucket") |> range(start: -100d)') for record in large_stream: if record["location"] == "New York": print(f'New York temperature: {record["_value"]}') break

large_stream.close()

print() print()

""" Query: using csv library """ csv_result = query_api.query_csv('from(bucket:"my-bucket") |> range(start: -10m)', dialect=Dialect(header=False, delimiter=",", comment_prefix="#", annotations=[], date_time_format="RFC3339")) for csv_line in csv_result: if not len(csv_line) == 0: print(f'Temperature in {csv_line[9]} is {csv_line[6]}')

""" Close client """ client.del()

Pandas DataFrame """""""""""""""" .. marker-pandas-start

.. note:: For DataFrame querying you should install Pandas dependency via

pip install influxdb-client[extra]
.

.. note:: Note that if a query returns more then one table then the client generates a

DataFrame
for each of them.

The

client
is able to retrieve data in
Pandas DataFrame 
_ format thought
query_data_frame
:

.. code-block:: python

from influxdb_client import InfluxDBClient, Point, Dialect
from influxdb_client.client.write_api import SYNCHRONOUS

client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org")

write_api = client.write_api(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS) query_api = client.query_api()

""" Prepare data """

_point1 = Point("my_measurement").tag("location", "Prague").field("temperature", 25.3) _point2 = Point("my_measurement").tag("location", "New York").field("temperature", 24.3)

write_api.write(bucket="my-bucket", record=[_point1, _point2])

""" Query: using Pandas DataFrame """ data_frame = query_api.query_data_frame('from(bucket:"my-bucket") ' '|> range(start: -10m) ' '|> pivot(rowKey:["_time"], columnKey: ["_field"], valueColumn: "_value") ' '|> keep(columns: ["location", "temperature"])') print(data_frame.to_string())

""" Close client """ client.del()

Output:

.. code-block::

    result table  location  temperature
0  _result     0  New York         24.3
1  _result     1    Prague         25.3

Connect to InfluxDB Cloud """"""""""""""""""""""""" The following example demonstrate a simplest way how to write and query date with the InfluxDB Cloud.

At first point you should create an authentication token as is described

here

influx_cloud_token
,
bucket
and
org
in a
influx_cloud.py
example.

Advanced Usage

Gzip support ^^^^^^^^^^^^ .. marker-gzip-start

InfluxDBClient
does not enable gzip compression for http requests by default. If you want to enable gzip to reduce transfer data's size, you can call:

.. code-block:: python

from influxdb_client import InfluxDBClient

dbclient = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org", enable_gzip=True)

.. marker-gzip-end

Delete data ^^^^^^^^^^^ .. marker-delete-start

The

delete_api.py 
_ supports deletes
points 
_ from an InfluxDB bucket.

.. code-block:: python

from influxdb_client import InfluxDBClient

client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token")

delete_api = client.delete_api()

""" Delete Data """ start = "1970-01-01T00:00:00Z" stop = "2021-02-01T00:00:00Z" delete_api.delete(start, stop, '_measurement="my_measurement"', bucket='my-bucket', org='my-org')

""" Close client """ client.del()

.. marker-delete-end

InfluxDB 1.8 API compatibility ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

InfluxDB 1.8.0 introduced forward compatibility APIs 
_ for InfluxDB 2.0. This allow you to easily move from InfluxDB 1.x to InfluxDB 2.0 Cloud or open source.

The following forward compatible APIs are available:

======================================================= ==================================================================================================== ======= API Endpoint Description ======================================================= ==================================================================================================== =======

query_api.py 
_
/api/v2/query 
_ Query data in InfluxDB 1.8.0+ using the InfluxDB 2.0 API and
Flux 
_ (endpoint should be enabled by
flux-enabled option 
) `writeapi.py
_
/api/v2/write https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/latest/tools/api/#api-v2-write-http-endpoint
_  Write data to InfluxDB 1.8.0+ using the InfluxDB 2.0 API
health()
_
/health https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/latest/tools/api/#health-http-endpointt`_ Check the health of your InfluxDB instance ======================================================= ==================================================================================================== =======

For detail info see

InfluxDB 1.8 example 
_.

HTTP Retry Strategy ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ By default the client uses a retry strategy only for batching writes (for more info see

Batching
_). For other HTTP requests there is no one retry strategy, but it could be configured by
retries
parameter of
InfluxDBClient
.

For more info about how configure HTTP retry see details in

urllib3 documentation 
_.

.. code-block:: python

from urllib3 import Retry

from influxdb_client import InfluxDBClient

retries = Retry(connect=5, read=2, redirect=5) client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org", retries=retries)

Nanosecond precision ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The Python's

datetime 
_ doesn't support precision with nanoseconds so the library during writes and queries ignores everything after microseconds.

If you would like to use

datetime
with nanosecond precision you should use
pandas.Timestamp 
_ that is replacement for python
datetime.datetime
object and also you should set a proper
DateTimeHelper
to the client.
  • sources -
    nanosecond_precision.py 
    _

.. code-block:: python

from influxdb_client import Point, InfluxDBClient
from influxdb_client.client.util.date_utils_pandas import PandasDateTimeHelper
from influxdb_client.client.write_api import SYNCHRONOUS

""" Set PandasDate helper which supports nanoseconds. """ import influxdb_client.client.util.date_utils as date_utils

date_utils.date_helper = PandasDateTimeHelper()

""" Prepare client. """ client = InfluxDBClient(url="http://localhost:8086", token="my-token", org="my-org")

write_api = client.write_api(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS) query_api = client.query_api()

""" Prepare data """

point = Point("h2o_feet")
.field("water_level", 10)
.tag("location", "pacific")
.time('1996-02-25T21:20:00.001001231Z')

print(f'Time serialized with nanosecond precision: {point.to_line_protocol()}') print()

write_api.write(bucket="my-bucket", record=point)

""" Query: using Stream """ query = ''' from(bucket:"my-bucket") |> range(start: 0, stop: now()) |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "h2o_feet") ''' records = query_api.query_stream(query)

for record in records: print(f'Temperature in {record["location"]} is {record["_value"]} at time: {record["_time"]}')

""" Close client """ client.del()
