Continuous queries#

Continuous queries run automatically and periodically on real-time data and store query results in a specified measurement. You can manage continuous queries using CREATE CONTINUOUS QUERY and similar commands.

For more information on Continuous Query commands, see InfluxQL Continuous Queries.


If you are using the InfluxDB® HTTP API directly, you may need to pass the name of the database as a URI argument, for example, &db=defaultdb, for some of the management commands to work.
