LoadPlugin "write_http"
<Plugin "write_http">
  <Node "example">
    URL ""
    Format "JSON"

Where is the listening point of your collectd-influxdb proxy.

To start the proxy

node proxy.js --influxdb_db mydb --influxdb_user myuser --influxdb_password mypassword

Where mydb, myuser and myspassword are connection parameter to Influxdb. By default, collectd-influxb-proxy assume influxdb is deployed on the same server.
