The library provide :

  • a lighter client than influxdb-java to push only series to an InfluxDB server.
  • A reporter for metrics which announces measurements.

The library provide a lighter client than influxdb-java to push only metrics.

Dependencies :

  • slf4j-api for logging.
  • metrics-core, to provide, if you use InfluxdbReporter.

Install:

Released

 dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.davidb:metrics-influxdb:0.9.3'
 }

Dev

 repositories {
    maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
 }
 dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.davidb:metrics-influxdb:-SNAPSHOT'
 }

Usage :

Using the Builder API and its defaults, it is easy to use InfluxdbReporter:

ScheduledReporter reporter = InfluxdbReporter.forRegistry(registry).build();
reporter.start(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

With the previous simple configuration, all defaults will be used, mainly:

  • protocol: HTTP
  • server: 127.0.0.1
  • port: 8086
  • authentication: none
  • database name: metrics
  • rates: converted to TimeUnit.SECONDS
  • duration: converted to TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS
  • idle metrics: do not report
  • influxdb protocol: v09 line protocol
  • ...

But you are free of course to define all settings by yourself :

final ScheduledReporter reporter = InfluxdbReporter.forRegistry(registry)
    .protocol(new HttpInfluxdbProtocol("http", "influxdb-server", 8086, "admin", "53CR3TP455W0RD", "metrics"))
    .convertRatesTo(TimeUnit.SECONDS)
    .convertDurationsTo(TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS)
    .filter(MetricFilter.ALL)
    .skipIdleMetrics(false)
    .tag("cluster", "CL01")
    .tag("client", "OurImportantClient")
    .tag("server", serverIP)
    .transformer(new CategoriesMetricMeasurementTransformer("module", "artifact"))
    .build();
reporter.start(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

And if you are still using v08 influxdb

final InfluxdbReporter reporter = InfluxdbReporter
    .forRegistry(registry)
    .protocol(new HttpInfluxdbProtocol("influxdb-server", 8086, "admin", "53CR3TP455W0RD", "metrics"))
    .v08()
    .build();
...
