I started playing around with InfluxDB. It took me a few moments to dig through the website and find out about the various front end tools. In the end I decided to go with Chronograf. The following is the
docker-compose.yaml I use on my local machine for testing:
version: '2' services: influxdb: image: influxdb:1.2.2 ports: - 8086:8086 - 8083:8083 chronograf: image: chronograf:0.13.0 ports: - 10000:10000 links: - influxdb:influxdb volumes: - ./chronograf:/var/lib/chronograf
As you can see, the data directory of chronograf is mapped to a host directory, to avoid accidentially loosing the visualizations.
