The transfer object of the Influx plug-in enables transfer of data to an Influx database.
Each transfer object is assigned to an InfluxDB connection, depending on the database to be written to.
InfluxDB Measurement, Tag and Fields
During data transfer, the measurement can be transferred from the data source or set statically. The measurements build the data pool in InfluxDB, comparable to a table in classic SQL.
The tag can also be determined statically or dynamically. Tags are used to group data in the InfluxDB to create a context for later queries.
The fields to be transferred are configured in the transfer object. In the connection, these are graphically connected with data points from the source. Fields are the individual fields of a data record. Compared to the classic SQL, the fields can be seen as columns of the tables.
