[udp]
  enabled = true
  bind-address = ":8086"
  database = "newman_reports_udp"
  batch-size = 1000
  batch-timeout = “1s”


To write, just send newline separated line protocol over UDP.  Can send one point at a time (not very performant) or send batches.

$ echo "newman_results value=1" > /dev/udp/localhost/8086
$ echo "select * from newman_results" | influx -database newman_reports_udp
Connected to http://localhost:8086 version 1.7
