The multimeter.storages.influx.InfluxDBStorage exports all Result to an Influx time series database.

InfluxDBStorage uses the official influxdb_client library and therefore, depends on its package to be installed. It can be automatically installed alongside multimeter by installing its optional extra [influxdb]:

pip install multimeter[influxdb]


All configuration values are given as arguments to the InfluxDBStorage constructor __init__() token is required and given as a positional argument, where all other values of the configuration are optional keyword values.


The InfluxDBStorage requires an authentication token to be able to write data to the database. This token can be manually created in the InfluxDB user interface or in an automated fashion using InfluxDB clients.


The url value defines the URL of the InfluxDB server instance to which the data will be sent. The url can be left out in which case, the URL of a server running on localhost with the default port is being use: 'http://localhost:8086'


Every data in an InfluxDB is assigned to be owned by an organization. The organizations are defined by the InfluxDB server and can be managed using its UI. As a default multimeter uses an organization 'kantai', but if this organization is not defined, InfluxDB will send an error 'organization name \"kantai\" not found'.


In InfluxDB data can be stored in different buckets. The name of the bucket can be specified as part of the configuration. If no value is given for bucket, multimeter expects a bucket with name multimeter.


from multimeter import Multimeter, ResourceProbe
from multimeter.storages.influx import InfluxDBStorage

meter = Multimeter(ResourceProbe(), storage=InfluxDBStorage(
    url='', org='my-org', bucket='my-bucket',
