VictoriaMetrics configuration

Hi All,

I am having trouble configuring VictoriaMetrics for storing long-term sensor data.

I am fairly new to HomeAssistant, possibly just missing some trivial things.
I use a HomeAssistantOS installation (KVM on Linux) which is accessible on the local network as homeassistant.local (on IP

The main problem is that I think I have configured everything correctly, but the Explore function of Grafana shows “No Data” when I try to query the default “value” from “measurement” query.

What I have done so far:

Installed the the VictoriaMetrics Addon via the UI


retention: 99y
additionalArguments: ""
enableHTTPAuth: false
username: ""
password: ""
enablePrometheusScrape: false
prometheusScrapeHTTPS: false
prometheusScrapeInterval: 20s
prometheusScrapeTimeout: 15s
longelivedToken: ""
homeassistantUrl: ""

port exposed: 8428 (default)

Installed the InfluxDB integration

By configuring it in configuration.yaml using the (File editor) plugin.

      - sensor.*_smartphone_*

      - binary_sensor.*_internet_access

Restarted Hass

In order for the InfluxDB setting to take effect.

Afterwards, I have checked the homeassistant.log file with the File editor and I did NOT see anything related to InfluxDB or VictoriaMetrics in it.

How could I investigate / debug what is happening ?

Any help is appreciated !

Hey @asoltesz,

Please check out Migrate from InfluxDB to VictoriaMetrics · VictoriaMetrics and check that you can establish the connection to VictoriaMetrics via the provided IP address and the same in reverse.

Would you mind sharing VM flags from /config path and information about the VM version? If your issue is not resolved - please fill out a bug report on VM GitHub page and add a link to this ticket.
