InfluxDB 3.0 Product Update Round-Up: Q2 2024

Navigate to:

Wrapping up another quarter provides an ideal time to look back on the features we rolled out across various products. Software is never finished, and our engineers have been working hard to deliver improvements to InfluxDB 3.0. This roundup highlights some of the developments and releases over the last few months.

Telegraf v 1.31

Telegraf is an open source server agent for collecting metrics and data from various sources, processing them, and sending them into a time series database like InfluxDB or other storage destinations. It’s lightweight and requires minimal configuration, making it highly efficient for gathering and reporting metrics in real-time.

The latest version of Telegraf introduced several new plugins, including a parser for Parquet and a range of new configuration options. You can check out the detailed release notes or download the latest version here.

Single Sign-On (SSO)

Single Sign-On is a user authentication process that allows individuals to access multiple applications or systems with just one set of credentials (such as a username and password). This technology simplifies the user experience by eliminating the need to remember and enter different service credentials. Enterprise environments often rely on SSO to enhance security and streamline user access by centrally managing authentication across various platforms. It not only boosts productivity by reducing password fatigue among users but also helps maintain higher security standards by enabling centralized control over user access and authentication.

We recently introduced SSO for InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated, our fully-managed, single-tenant cloud offering. Our team did a great job of streamlining the configuration process so customers using Cloud Dedicated can get their SSO up and running fast.

Dedicated Dashboard

We heard from customers that they wanted to be able to monitor their InfluxDB Cloud Dedicated instances. So, we put some time and resources into delivering that observability for them. Now, any Cloud Dedicated customer can access information about their cluster using a Grafana dashboard. Having insight into cluster health and performance can help organizations better plan and allocate resources.

Stay tuned!

We have a bunch more features waiting in the wings, so keep an eye out for more product updates in the near future. Until then, check out the technical challenges our team is working on, like optimizing Parquet Bloom filters, data partitioning, and how to make queries run 100x faster.
