Using a brand new install on Ubuntu, it seems that the new-user-setup/python script contains an error.
The Initialise Client and Write Data steps supply a two part Python script that can be pasted into the terminal using Python3, or run as a script.
During this procedure the following error occurs.
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/ubuntu/monitor_scripts/setup_influx.py", line 13, in <module> write_api = client.write_api(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS) NameError: name 'client' is not defined
The script that is generated by the pages is as follows:
import influxdb_client, os, time from influxdb_client import InfluxDBClient, Point, WritePrecision from influxdb_client.client.write_api import SYNCHRONOUS token = os.environ.get("INFLUXDB_TOKEN") org = "My_Data_Org" url = "http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8086" write_client = influxdb_client.InfluxDBClient(url=url, token=token, org=org) bucket="My_Bucket" write_api = client.write_api(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS) for value in range(5): point = ( Point("measurement1") .tag("tagname1", "tagvalue1") .field("field1", value) ) write_api.write(bucket=bucket, org="QFES_Catalyst", record=point) time.sleep(1) # separate points by 1 second
client is not defined at any point. Thus, this line fails:
write_api = client.write_api(write_options=SYNCHRONOUS)
