InfluxDB destination plugin

InfluxDB is an open-source time-series database that allows you store, process, and visualize time-stamped telemetry data from your applications and systems. It offers a standardized and efficient way to manage metrics, events, and logs, enabling you to extract valuable insights into the behavior and performance of your applications and infrastructure. InfluxDB supports various programming languages and platforms, and offers a diverse array of integrations with external tools and systems.
