InfluxDB 2 on Raspberry Pi?

Will there be a Raspberry Pi version of InfluxDB 2?

There is already arm64 build available for download: Downloads
So, you need some 64bit OS for RPI, e.g. Ubuntu 64

Thanks a lot, I need to install a 64 OS :slight_smile:

I did it over the weekend on my Rasp PI 400. It was pretty easy and the Ubuntu ARM64 imaged worked perfectly.

Unfortunately, I have already running lots of stuff on my Raspi, so I can’t just use another OS.
Does anybody know if the following works:?

I followed the installtion method for influx 1.8 on pi-os 32 bit on pi-of 64 bit.

Changed the following command,

sudo apt-get install influxdb (version 1.8, 32 bit or 64 bit)


sudo apt-get install influxdb2 (version 2.0, only works on 64bit)

I know the thread is over a year old :grin: the information might still be useful if someone is stuck on Raspberry Pi 4 with a 32 Bit OS for reasons.

You can in fact switch to the 64 Bit Kernel without issues (my system is running for at least a year now with this Kernel without any issues at all).
If the transition to the 64 Bit Kernel is done, uninstall Influxdb v1 and then force install the 64 Bit Influxdb Debian packages. After that, proceed with the upgrade as outlined in the official guide.

My Raspberry Pi 4 (Model B Rev 1.2) is running Kernel 5.10.103-v8+ (aarch64) but is comming from a 32 Bit base OS installation:
PRETTY_NAME=“Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)”
NAME=“Raspbian GNU/Linux”
VERSION=“10 (buster)”

raspi.list: deb Index of /debian buster main

$ influxd version
InfluxDB v2.5.1 (git: 5b6fdbf05d) build_date: 2022-11-02T18:06:20Z

My procedure after switching to the 64 Bit Kernel was:

# apt remove influxdb
# wget
# wget
# dpkg --force-architecture -i ./influxdb2-2.5.1-arm64.deb
# dpkg --force-architecture -i ./influxdb2-client-2.5.0-arm64.deb
# mkdir /var/lib/influxdb2
# chown influxdb:influxdb /var/lib/influxdb2 /etc/influxdb
# sudo -u influxdb influxd upgrade -e /var/lib/influxdb2/engine -m /var/lib/influxdb2/influxd.bolt -c /var/lib/influxdb2/configs --v2-config-path /etc/influxdb/config.toml --overwrite-existing-v2 --config-file /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf

OpenHAB and Grafana are happy using the old users and even using the old queries (InfluxQL)
