To give you the bigger picture, I’m trying to run InfluxDB 1.5.2 using environment variables (without editing config). Doing that I’ve run into
bind-address setting in back then
[ifql] and now
[flux] section I suppose. This section is not documented. So, I wonder what it controls.
flux is probably the new query language. I saw
flux repository, and it seems like to be able to use it you’ve got to install and run it separately. Although some other information suggests that it was embedded into nightlies (3).
So, this another process is reading the same
influxdb.conf? And uses
bind-address to choose what to listen to? And to do Flux queries I connect to this process, and it in its turn connects to InfluxDB? And the reason I don’t see anything listening to port 8082 is because I didn’t start this extra process?
Thanks in advance.
