QuestDB Client Library for Rust

Official Rust client for QuestDB, an open-source SQL database designed to process time-series data, faster.

The client library is designed for fast ingestion of data into QuestDB via the InfluxDB Line Protocol (ILP).

Getting Started

To start using questdb-rs add it to your Cargo.toml:

questdb-rs = "4.0.0"


See documentation for the ingress module to insert data into QuestDB via the ILP protocol.


use questdb::{

fn main() -> Result<()> {
   let mut sender = Sender::from_conf("http::addr=localhost:9000;")?;
   let mut buffer = Buffer::new();
       .symbol("id", "toronto1")?
       .column_f64("temperature", 20.0)?
       .column_i64("humidity", 50)?
   sender.flush(&mut buffer)?;

Crate features

This Rust crate supports a number of optional features.

For example, if you want to work with ILP/HTTP and work with Chrono timestamps, use:

cargo add questdb-rs --features ilp-over-http chrono

Default-enabled features

  • tls-webpki-certs: Use the webpki-roots crate for TLS cert verification.

Optional features

These features are opt-in as they bring in additional downstream dependencies.

  • ilp-over-http: Enables ILP/HTTP support via the ureq crate.
  • tls-native-certs: Supports validating TLS certificates against the OS's certificates store.
  • insecure-skip-verify: Allows skipping TLS validation.
  • chrono_timestamp: Allows specifying timestamps as chrono::Datetime objects.

C, C++ and Python APIs

This crate is also exposed as a C and C++ API and in turn exposed to Python.
