Data sent via UDP is not stored in correct Database

influxdb
#1

Overview

  • influxdb-python : v.5.2.0
  • python: version 3.4.3
  • Machine: Window 10 + Windows subsystem for Linux (WSL)

Scenario

  • Configured udp to be accessed via 8089
  • InfluxDB running via Powershell
  • Python Script executed via WSL

Code

from influxdb import InfluxDBClient

def main():
    client = InfluxDBClient(host='localhost',database='example',use_udp=True, udp_port=8089)

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

    try:
        client.send_packet(json_body)
    except Exception as e:
        raise e


if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

Output

Instead of saving the information in the example database the information is stored in a newly created database called udp.

No measurements are created in example

All values are available in udp
