Web Console Features

This is archived documentation for InfluxData product versions that are no longer maintained. For newer documentation, see the latest InfluxData documentation.

The Web Console provides a user interface for interacting with your InfluxEnterprise Cluster. Use the Web Console to:

  • View overall cluster health
  • View and, if necessary, kill active queries
  • Create new databases
  • Create new retention policies
  • Delete unwanted shards
  • Explore data and create graphs with the Data Explorer

Cluster rebalancing

The Web Console version 0.7.0+ allows users to easily rebalance data across all data nodes in the InfluxEnterprise Cluster. The Rebalance button is available on the Tasks page.

Performing a rebalance is useful if you’ve recently adjusted a retention policy’s replication factor or if you’ve added a data node to a cluster. Rebalancing a cluster:

  • Allocates existing shards such that each data node has roughly the same number of shards.
  • Ensures that all existing data adhere to the relevant replication factor.

Note that performing a rebalance can result in temporarily inconsistent data across data nodes. That inconsistency is not permanent and the cluster will resolve it over time.

Features Under Development

  • Additional support for raw InfluxQL queries
  • A UI for setting up monitoring and alerting rules within Kapacitor
