Alternatives to HTTP API?

influxdb
telegraf
#1

Are there more intimate APIs to stream data to Influx? More connection-oriented/non-textual APIs? At high data volumes, it would seem that the HTTP overhead and parsing overhead could be substantial and limiting, particularly in real world IoT use cases.

#2

In Telegraf, metrics are batched with a default batch size of 1000, the HTTP overhead is relatively minor in this case. If you need additional performance you can also send over UDP.
