JSON Protocol

This is archived documentation for InfluxData product versions that are no longer maintained.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

The JSON write protocol is no longer a valid write protocol for InfluxDB.

The protocol was deprecated as of InfluxDB 0.9.1 and was disabled by default in InfluxDB 0.11. Line Protocol is the only recommended write protocol for InfluxDB 0.13.

For reasons behind its removal, please see the comments on the line protocol pull request, particularly the comments on JSON serialization CPU costs and on the ease of use concerns.
