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This is archived documentation for InfluxData product versions that are no longer maintained.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 deprecated as of InfluxDB 0.9.1. It is still present but it will be removed when InfluxDB 1.0 is released. The line protocol is the primary write protocol for InfluxDB 0.9.1+.

For reasons behind the deprecation, 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.
