NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade influxdb -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade influxdb -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

InfluxDB is a time series database designed to handle high write and query loads. It is an integral component of the TICK stack. InfluxDB is meant to be used as a backing store for any use case involving large amounts of timestamped data, including DevOps monitoring, application metrics, IoT sensor data, and real-time analytics.


  • Custom high performance datastore written specifically for time series data. The TSM engine allows for high ingest speed and data compression
  • Written entirely in Go. It compiles into a single binary with no external dependencies.
  • Simple, high performing write and query HTTP APIs.
  • Plugins support for other data ingestion protocols such as Graphite, collectd, and OpenTSDB.
  • Expressive SQL-like query language tailored to easily query aggregated data.
  • Tags allow series to be indexed for fast and efficient queries.
  • Retention policies efficiently auto-expire stale data.
  • Continuous queries automatically compute aggregate data to make frequent queries more efficient.

Package parameters

  • /InstallRoot - Installation directory root, by default c:\influxdata


  • The open source edition of InfluxDB runs on a single node. If you require high availability to eliminate a single point of failure, consider the InfluxDB Enterprise Edition.
  • InfluxDB v1.x package: influxdb1

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
