gnmic supports exporting subscription updates to influxDB time series database

An influxdb output can be defined using the below format in gnmic config file under outputs section:

    - type: influxdb # required
      url: http://localhost:8086 # influxDB server address
      org: myOrg # empty if using influxdb1.8.x
      bucket: telemetry # string in the form database/retention-policy. Skip retention policy for the default on
      token: # influxdb 1.8.x use a string in the form: "username:password"
      batch_size: 1000 # number of points to buffer before writing to the server
      flush_timer: 10s # flush period after which the buffer is written to the server whether the batch_size is reached or not
      use_gzip: false
      enable_tls: false
      health_check_period: 30s # server health check period, used to recover from server connectivity failure
      debug: false # enable debug

gnmic uses the event format to generate the measurements written to influxdb
