Announcing InfluxDB v0.13 Plus Clustering Early Access

Shubhra Kar — May 12, 2016

The team at InfluxData is excited to announce the immediate availability of v0.13 of the TICK stack!

What’s the TICK stack? It’s InfluxData’s end-to-end platform for collecting, storing, visualizing and alerting on time-series data at scale. Learn more.

We are also pleased to announce early access to InfluxEnterprise. If you have been waiting for InfluxDB clustering to run on your infrastructure with the ability to rebalance nodes, plus a slick UI to deploy, manage and monitor the deployment, InfluxEnterprise is for you.

InfluxDB v0.13

  • Upgrade to Go v1.6.2 delivering performance gains
  • Support for DELETE FROM
  • Time Zone Support – offset argument in the GROUP BY time(…) call

There’s a total of 27 new features and 32 bug fixes! Detailed release notes can be found here and downloads here.

Telegraf v0.13

Chronograf v0.13

Kapacitor v0.13

InfluxDB’s native data processing and alerting engine now supports BYOA (bring your own algorithm) analytics. UDFs written in languages of your choice running in Docker containers can be launched independent of Kapacitor by exposing a Unix socket. On startup Kapacitor will connect to the socket and begin communication, applying the UDF logic to the time series data being processed.

New in this release:

  • UDFs can be connected over a Unix socket. This enables UDFs from across Docker containers to be applied to the Influx data pipeline.
  • CLI features to ID, list and delete tasks, recordings and replays
  • API lock down to a stable 1.0 version

There’s a total of 18 new features and 8 bug fixes! Detailed release notes can be found here and and downloads here.

But wait, there’s more…
