How to deploy influxdb in blue-green mode using docker images?

We are using influxdb docker images in our influxdb setup. currently, it is just one instance and we wanted to run in blue-green mode… Is there any document available for influxdb blue-green deployment(using docker images) ??


Sadly, blue / green deployments are not something that’s possible with stateful workloads. There’s no guarantees when upgrading, or rolling back, that the workload will continue to function.

Your best bet is to rely on Telegraf to cache metrics until your upgrade of InfluxDB is ready to accept traffic.

If you want to discuss this in more detail, let me know


thanks @rawkode @katy cache the metrics during the upgrade very beneficial for us. we can discuss further on this topic.Let me know how can we implement?
