Plugin for Artillery.IO that records response data into InfluxDB.

To use:

  1. npm install -g artillery

  2. npm install artillery-plugin-influxdb

  3. Add influxdb Plugin config to your "hello.json" Artillery script

      "config": {
        "plugins": {
            "influxdb": {
                "testName": "my_load_test_case",
                "measurementName": "Latency",
                "errorMeasurementName": "ClientSideErrors",
                "testRunId": "342-233-221",
                "tags": {
                    "environment": "joes-dev-box",
                    "host": "joe-dev.somewhere.org"
                "influx": {
                    "host": "my.influx.server.com",
                    "username": "joe_developer",
                    "password": "1t`sA$3cr3t",
                    "database": "load_test_results"
  4. artillery run hello.json

This will cause every latency to be published to the given InfluxDB instance.

testName yes none Name of the test being performed.
measurementName no latency Measurement name used when writing latency to DynamoDB.
errorMeasurementName no clientErrors Errors raised by the Artillery client during the test.

Using environment variables to store credentials
