InfluxDB pre v1.1.0 users

This module is tested with InfluxDB v1.2.4, our recommended version. Though there have been v1.3 (initial TSI branch) and v1.4 releases these are not yet supported.

Those users still on InfluxDB v0.8.x users may still use the legacy client by importing from influxdb.influxdb08 import InfluxDBClient.

>>> from influxdb import InfluxDBClient

>>> json_body = [
    {
        "measurement": "cpu_load_short",
        "tags": {
            "host": "server01",
            "region": "us-west"
        },
        "time": "2009-11-10T23:00:00Z",
        "fields": {
            "value": 0.64
        }
    }
]

>>> client = InfluxDBClient('localhost', 8086, 'root', 'root', 'example')

>>> client.create_database('example')

>>> client.write_points(json_body)

>>> result = client.query('select value from cpu_load_short;')

>>> print("Result: {0}".format(result))
