NAME
       influxd-config -	Generate configuration files for InfluxDB

SYNOPSIS
       influxd config (-config <path>)
       influxd config -config /dev/null

DESCRIPTION
       influxd config will generate a configuration file for InfluxDB. The
       configuration file will be output to standard output and	can be written
       to a file by redirecting	the shell output to another file.

       When a configuration file is specified using -config _path_, this
       configuration file will be read and will	overwrite the default values
       for any values that are present.	It can be used to provide a
       configuration fragment with only	the options you	want to	customize and
       generate	a new configuration file from that file. If -config _path_ is
       not specified, the command will look for	a default configuration	file
       using the same method as	influxd-run(1).

       When using this command to regenerate a configuration file in place, be
       sure to use a temporary file as the output. This	command	will not work:

       === # DO	NOT USE! $ influxd config -config influxdb.conf	>
       influxdb.conf

       # PROPER	METHOD!	$ influxd config -config influxdb.conf >
       influxdb.conf.tmp && \ mv influxdb.conf.tmp influxdb.conf ===

       The shell will truncate the configuration file before influxd config
       can read	it and you will	lose all of your custom	options. For safety,
       redirect	output to a temporary file instead and use mv to move the file
       afterwards.

       The second command version will force influxd config to output the
       default configuration file. Setting the configuration file to /dev/null
       will cause the command to output	only the defaults and will not read
       any values from any existing configuration files.

OPTIONS
       -config <path>
	   Customize the default configuration file to load. Disables
	   automatic loading when the path is /dev/null.
