hi, all
I have a question about updating existing data
should I give sequence number?

Yes. In this unrelated issue: influxdb/influxdb#53 You can read this:
You should be able to write null values. It should also be a way to remove a previously existing column value if you specify a timestamp and sequence_number, since writes with those fields specified are either inserts (if non-existant) or updates. If it's an update, nulls should clear out anything that might have been there before. Thanks for the code to reproduce!
