ESP8266_Influx_DB

Library for NodeMcu / ESP8266 (and Arduino?) for sending measurements to an Influx database.

There is also a branch with v2 support

Initialization

 #define INFLUXDB_HOST "192.168.0.32"
 #define INFLUXDB_PORT "1337"
 #define INFLUXDB_DATABASE "test"
 //if used with authentication
 #define INFLUXDB_USER "user"
 #define INFLUXDB_PASS "password"

 // connect to WiFi

 Influxdb influx(INFLUXDB_HOST); // port defaults to 8086
 // or to use a custom port
 Influxdb influx(INFLUXDB_HOST, INFLUXDB_PORT);

 // set the target database
 influx.setDb(INFLUXDB_DATABASE);
 // or use a db with auth
 influx.setDbAuth(INFLUXDB_DATABASE, INFLUXDB_USER, INFLUXDB_PASS) // with authentication

Sending a single measurement

Using an InfluxData object:

// create a measurement object
InfluxData measurement ("temperature");
measurement.addTag("device", d2);
measurement.addTag("sensor", "dht11");
measurement.addValue("value", 24.0);

// write it into db
influx.write(measurement);

Using raw-data

 influx.write("temperature,device=d2,sensor=dht11 value=24.0")

Write multiple data points at once

Batching measurements and send them with a single request will result in a much higher performance.

InfluxData measurement1 = readTemperature()
influx.prepare(measurement1)

InfluxData measurement2 = readLight()
influx.prepare(measurement2)

InfluxData measurement3 = readVoltage()
influx.prepare(measurement3)

// writes all prepared measurements with a single request into db.
boolean success = influx.write();

Http client error codes

Internally ESP8266HTTPClient is used.
