is there any way to find out how many entries are in a series if I don't know any of the field names?
something like sql 'select count(*) from stats'

I havent found that either. I tried select count(time) and count(sequence_number) but it says those columns aren't available :/

influx> select count(time) from stats
Server returned (400): Field time doesn't exist in series stats

does that mean the series is empty?

bc i thought time is a required field
@pauldix @jvshahid are you around here?

Yup the documentation says both fields are always available. But I think they're not when you're counting
