Kafka Connect InfluxDB Connector¶
The InfluxDB Connector is used to send data from Kafka to a downstream InfluxDB Server.
Install the InfluxDB Connector¶
You can install this connector by using the Confluent Hub client (recommended) or you can manually download the ZIP file.
Navigate to your Confluent Platform installation directory and run this command to install the latest (
latest) connector version.
The connector must be installed on every machine where Connect will be run.
confluent-hub install confluentinc/kafka-connect-influxdb:latest
You can install a specific version by replacing
latest with a version number. For example:
confluent-hub install confluentinc/kafka-connect-influxdb:1.0.0-preview
Download the ZIP file and extract it into a directory that is listed on the plugin path of the Connect worker
configuration properties (e.g.
plugin.path=/usr/local/share/kafka/plugins). This must be done on each of the
installations where Connect will be run. For more information, see Installing Plugins.
