Using the Dapr InfluxDB component

A while ago, I created a component that can write to InfluxDB 2.0 from Dapr. This component is now included in the 0.10 release. In this post, we will briefly look at how you can use it.

Login to pages using python

This video should users how to: login into a (aspx) based website; parse web page data to collect information of interest; insert collected data into influxdb; and visualize data into grafana charts.

High performance python based SNMP poller

In my last post, I wrote a basic SNMP poller using python easysnmp module. To make it more practical and industry ready I have further enriched it with the following.

Monitoring the Linky electricity meter

Linky is a “smart electricity meter” from the French power grid operator Enedis. One nice thing about this device is that it automatically reports your electricty consumption. By polling the operator’s portal, one can fetch back its own data. And if the data are then stored in InfluxDB, one can keep a pretty look on its power consumption.

Monitoring Room Temperature for your Brew with Pi, InfluxDB, Grafana and IFTTT

Recently, I have started brewing my own beer. My wife bought me a 1 gallon kit for Father’s Day so I could dive right in and start learning the craft beer brewing process. It is something that I have always been interested in learning but never took the time and space has been limited. The whole beer making process has always intrigued me and is something that is way out of my element.

Easily Migrate Postgres/MySQL Records to InfluxDB

Computers have been collecting and storing data in relational/schema systems for many years. However, digital storage growth outpaces that of computing processing power by leaps and bounds. Additionally, the amount of unstructured that is collected greatly exceeds that of structured data, further limiting the utility of tradional database systems. For these reasons, today’s data storage technqiues call for some new technical constructs required to break the boundaries of traditional transaction-processing databases.
