Docker Image with InfluxDB and Grafana

Docker Pulls license

Grafana Influx Chronograf

Buy me a coffee

This is a Docker image based on the awesome Docker Image with Telegraf (StatsD), InfluxDB and Grafana from Samuele Bistoletti.

The main point of difference with this image is:

  • Persistence is supported via mounting volumes to a Docker container
  • Grafana will store its data in SQLite files instead of a MySQL table on the container, so MySQL is not installed
  • Telegraf (StatsD) is not included in this container

The main purpose of this image is to be used to show data from a Home Assistant installation. For more information on how to do that, please see my website about how I use this container.

Description Value
InfluxDB 1.8.2
ChronoGraf 1.8.6
Grafana 7.2.0

Quick Start

To start the container with persistence you can use the following:

docker run -d \
  --name docker-influxdb-grafana \
  -p 3003:3003 \
  -p 3004:8083 \
  -p 8086:8086 \
  -v /path/for/influxdb:/var/lib/influxdb \
  -v /path/for/grafana:/var/lib/grafana \

To stop the container launch:

docker stop docker-influxdb-grafana

To start the container again launch:

docker start docker-influxdb-grafana
