Overview

This module manages InfluxDB installation.

Build Status Puppet Forge

Module Description

The InfluxDB module manages both the installation and configuration of InfluxDB. I am planning to extend it to allow management of InfluxDB resources, such as databases, users, and privileges.

Deprecation Warning

Notes for version 4.0.0+:

influxdb 1.0.0 contains breaking changes which require changing the data_logging_enabled config attribute to trace_logging_enabled. The other configuration changes are managed by the influxdb.conf.erb template already.

Notes for versions older than 3.1.1:

This release is a major refactoring of the module which means that the API changed in backwards incompatible ways. If your project depends on the old API and you need to use influxdb prior to 0.10.X, please pin your module dependencies to 0.1.2 (0.8.X) or 2.2.2 (0.9.X) version to ensure your environments don't break.

NOTE: Until influxdb 1.0.0 is releases the API of this module may change, however I will try my best to avoid it.

Installation

puppet module install golja/influxdb

Setup

What InfluxDB affects

  • InfluxDB packages
  • InfluxDB configuration files
  • InfluxDB service

Beginning with InfluxDB

If you just want a server installed with the default options you can run include '::influxdb::server'.

Usage

All interaction for the server is done via influxdb::server.

Install influxdb

class {'influxdb::server':}

Join a cluster

class {'influxdb::server':
  meta_bind_address      => "${::fqdn}:8088",
  meta_http_bind_address => "${::fqdn}:8091",
  http_bind_address      => "${::fqdn}:8086",
  influxd_opts           => "-join my.other.node1:8091,my.other.node2:8091"
}

For more info on setting up a raft cluster, see the InfluxDB docs

Enable Graphite plugin with one database

class {'influxdb::server':
  graphite_options => {
    enabled           => true,
    database          => graphite,
    bind-address      => ':2003',
    protocol          => tcp,
    consistency-level => 'one',
    name-separator    => '.',
    batch-size        => 1000,
    batch-pending     => 5,
    batch-timeout     => '1s',
    udp-read-buffer   => 0,
    name-schema       => 'type.host.measurement.device',
    templates         => [ "*.app env.service.resource.measurement" ],
    tags              => [ "region=us-east", "zone=1c"],
  },
}

Enable Collectd plugin

class {'influxdb::server':
  collectd_options => {
    enabled => true,
    bind-address => ':25826',
    database => 'foo',
    typesdb => '/usr/share/collectd/types.db',
    batch-size => 1000,
    batch-pending => 5,
    batch-timeout => '1s',
    read-buffer => 0,
  },
}

Enable UDP listener

$udp_options = [
    { 'enabled'       => true,
      'bind-address'  => ':8089',
      'database'      => 'udp_db1',
      'batch-size'    => 10000,
      'batch-timeout' => '1s',
      'batch-pending' => 5,
    },
    { 'enabled'       => true,
      'bind-address'  => ':8090',
      'database'      => 'udp_db2',
      'batch-size'    => 10000,
      'batch-timeout' => '1s',
      'batch-pending' => 5,
    },
]

class {'influxdb::server':
    reporting_disabled    => true,
    http_auth_enabled     => true,
    shard_writer_timeout  => '10s',
    cluster_write_timeout => '10s',
    udp_options           => $udp_options,
}

Enable opentsdb

class {'influxdb::server':
  opentsdb_options => {
    enabled => true,
    bind-address => ':4242',
    database => 'foo',
    typesdb => '/usr/share/collectd/types.db',
    batch-size => 1000,
    batch-pending => 5,
    batch-timeout => '1s',
    read-buffer => 0,
  },
}
