Working with MQTT and InfluxDB
MQTT is a protocol for machine-to-machine communication based on a publish/subscribe model allowing IoT devices to publish messages to a broker into a specific topic. Effectively, MQTT exists to pass along data generated by IoT devices.
Users leveraging that data still need a way to collect, store, and analyze it. This paper is an introduction to MQTT and includes the benefits and challenges of working with it, as well as some general use cases. It also includes information on InfluxData’s Native MQTT collector, which makes it easy to send data from an MQTT broker to InfluxDB Cloud.
In this e-book, you will learn:
- The history of the MQTT protocol
- How developers use this protocol
- Some of the challenges with MQTT
