InfluxData 1.x Sandbox
This repo is a quick way to get the entire 1.x TICK Stack spun up and working together. It uses Docker to spin up the full TICK stack in a connected fashion. This is heavily tested on MacOS and should mostly work on Linux and Windows.
To get started you need a running docker installation. If you don't have one, you can download Docker for Mac or Windows, or follow the installation instructions for Docker CE for your Linux distribution.
To run the
sandbox, simply use the convenient cli:
$ ./sandbox sandbox commands: up -> spin up the sandbox environment (add -nightly to grab the latest nightly builds of InfluxDB and Chronograf) down -> tear down the sandbox environment restart -> restart the sandbox influxdb -> attach to the influx cli flux -> attach to the flux REPL enter (influxdb||kapacitor||chronograf||telegraf) -> enter the specified container logs (influxdb||kapacitor||chronograf||telegraf) -> stream logs for the specified container delete-data -> delete all data created by the TICK Stack docker-clean -> stop and remove all running docker containers rebuild-docs -> rebuild the documentation container to see updates
To get started just run
./sandbox up. You browser will open two tabs:
localhost:8888- Chronograf's address. You will use this as a management UI for the full stack
localhost:3010- Documentation server. This contains a simple markdown server for tutorials and documentation.
NOTE: Make sure to stop any existing installations of
chronograf. If you have them running the Sandbox will run into port conflicts and fail to properly start. In this case stop the existing processes and run
./sandbox restart. Also make sure you are not using Docker Toolbox.
Once the Sandbox launches, you should see your dashboard appear in your browser:
You are ready to get started with the TICK Stack!
