InfluxDB

Chef cookbook to install and configure InfluxDB.

Now supports Influxdb versions before and after 0.9.x

Usage and Resources

The InfluxDB cookbook comes with a Vagrantfile. Test using vagrant up. Simply running the default recipe should be sufficient. Real tests coming soon!

For rendering the config

  • For Influxdb versions before 0.9.x:
    set the parameter under node[:influxdb][:config]
  • For versions 0.9.x and greater: set the parameter under node[:influxdb][:zero_nine][:config]

default[:influxdb][:config]['MyParameter'] = 'val'

The following gems are used by the InfluxDB::Helpers module:

This cookbook ships with three LWRPs for managing the install, users, and databases:

influxdb

This resource installs and configures InfluxDB based on node[:influxdb][:config]:

influxdb 'main' do
  source node[:influxdb][:source]
  checksum node[:influxdb][:checksum]
  config node[:influxdb][:config] # Or if >=  0.9.x it will use node[:influxdb][:zero_nine][:config]
  action :create
end

The checksum and config parameters are optional.

influxdb_database

Configures an InfluxDB database.

influxdb_database 'my_db' do
  action :create
end

influxdb_user

Configures a user to interact with InfluxDB databases.

influxdb_user 'user' do
  password 'changeme'
  databases ['my_db']
  action :create
end

influxdb_admin

Configures a cluster admin to interact with InfluxDB.

influxdb_admin 'admin' do
  password 'changeme'
  action :create
end

Client Libraries

Right now, this cookbook only supports the Ruby and CLI client libraries so as not to add too many dependencies. That might change in the near future. By default both flavors are disabled. Enable e.g. Ruby via:

node.default[:influxdb][:client][:ruby][:enable] = true

Tests

To run tests, install all dependencies with bundler:

bundle install

Then to run tests:

rake # Quick tests only (rubocop + minitest)
rake test:complete # All tests (rubocop + minitest + kitchen)
