Opsview Timeseries InfluxDB (
opsview-timeseries-influxdb) provides a Timeseries storage framework. It consists of dedicated InfluxDB Updaters and Queries processes to maximize the throughput.
Note: This cannot be installed at the same time as
Full details on setting up or migrating to the InfluxDB graphing engine can be found on Timeseries Graphing Engine.
Opsview Timeseries InfluxDB Updaters launches a master management process that binds to the configured ports, for each port configured a worker process is started, each worker is responsible for handling the requests for the given port. That provides the guarantee that the data sent from Opsview Timeseries Enqueuer for a given host is handled by a single process only, thus removes the risk of processing the data out of order. The metadata (including the uoms) is stored in the SQlite3 database.
Opsview Timeseries InfluxDB Queries provide a way of querying the gathered performance metrics and listing them.
Opsview Timeseries InfluxDB can be installed on any supported platform. To reduce network traffic it is recommended to install it on the same host as the Opsview Timeseries Enqueuer component.
You must separately install InfluxDB, unlike RRD it is not bundled with Opsview
You must use version 1.8.x or older for InfluxDB
# download package for your platform and follow the install documentation from InfluxDB https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.8/introduction/installation # create a fresh Opsview database in InfluxDB curl -i -XPOST http://127.0.0.1:8086/query --data-urlencode "q=CREATE DATABASE opsview"
Refer to Advanced Automated Installation.
opsview-timeseries-influxdb was installed on other then Opsview Timeseries or Timeseries Enqueuer host, you need to update the
/opt/opsview/timeseriesinfluxdb/etc/timeseriesinfluxdb.yaml file to listen other than loopback interface.

All configurable options are listed in the

- As indicated by the output of the previous command, now update
/opt/opsview/deploy/etc/user_vars.ymlwhich indicates to use the loadbalancer to communicate with InfluxDB:
These steps will update the configuration of the InfluxDB server in
/etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf to enforce HTTPS communication using the Opsview certificates.
Note: These steps do not apply when InfluxDB is running on the same host as the timeseries components.
On the InfluxDB hosts, modify
/etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf, to set
https-enabled = false
- On the InfluxDB host, run
sudo systemctl restart influxdb
opsview_timeseries_influxdb_server_url: http://<InfluxDB host>:8086
As root, start, stop and restart the service using:
