Gatlingdb is not forming in influx db


I have installed influxdb on ubuntu 18.04 and enabled the graphite however it is not creating the db. this is the change i made in configuration


enabled = true
database = “gatlingdb”
retention-policy = “”
bind-address = “:2003”
protocol = “tcp”
consistency-level = “one”
templates = [
“gatling.... measurement.simulation.request.status.field”,
“gatling..users..* measurement.simulation.measurement.request.field”
however when i start my influxdb and type SHOW DATABASES it is only showing _internal


Hi @roshni,

It’s my understanding that until data is actually stored into the database, it won’t be created. Have you started sending data to this InfluxDB database yet? You can also look in /var/log/influxdb.log (or wherever you’re logging to) and see if there is any errors being logged.

Best regards,


Hi @davidgs

Thank you for the reply. Actually the aim is to send metrics from gatling to influxdb,however it is not writing to influx. I tried looking my log file inside var/logs/influxdb but it is empty.


Hi @roshni,

Without a lot more information, it will be nearly impossible to debug what’s going on here. Maybe you can try answering these sections below in detail:

Hii @davidgs,

Thanks a lot for you informations and sorry for the late reply. Actually my issue is resolved the issue was i checked whether the database was formed without running gatling. Through your reply i realized my mistake and now it is resolved. Thanks a lot again.
