Building a Hybrid Architecture with InfluxDB
Session date: Oct 05, 2023 08:00am (Pacific Time)
In this two-hour hands-on virtual training session, you will learn how to build an IoT application using InfluxDB and Telegraf while collecting data from edge devices using an MQTT broker. We will start by showing you how to set up an instance of InfluxDB and Telegraf on an edge device to ingest sensor data via an MQTT Broker. Then, to highlight our new edge replication feature, you will move on to downsampling the data to send on to an InfluxDB Cloud instance. Next, you will learn how to utilise the new FlightSQL plugin for Grafana to query InfluxDB Cloud and create some interesting visualizations that show the power of geolocation and time series data. This course is rich in hands-on learning and additional resources to support your education experience with InfluxDB University. In this course, you will get your hands on all the basics, including querying, connecting to, storing, and analyzing data.
- A basic knowledge of programming concepts such as using the command line.
