Most of the time we only use mean value per minute
So we dont really need to store per second or millisecond data
So if there is a way to insert as it update the mean value of the minute range, we would save alot more computation time as well as the storage

Hi, is there any good example how to use KapacitorLoopback node?
Can it be used for chaining streams from different tick scripts?
Is there community/paid support? This room looks useless!!
Ed Kim
Haha agree
Hey just posting this here in case there's a chance somebody can help. I'm having trouble using GROUP BY inside subqueries.
nvm figured it out

Hey.. Have anyone tried pushing open tracing data in Jaeger or Zipkin format to influxdb and seen the traces using Jager / Zipkin as chronograf doesn't support it?
Let me know if i am missing anything

any ETA FOR telegrad 1.6?
Hi, I'm having an issue where I get this exception writing stats to influxdb
.server.influx.dao.InfluxDBDao - The InfluxDB test-write failed. Please check the provided credentials and user permissions.
I did check with the config file and I'm using the right username/password.

Hello, new to influx and I have an issue. I recently wrote a script to bulk insert a mass of data to influx but forgot to set a precision and my seconds timestamps are being interpreted as nano-seconds resulting in all my data being set to sometime in the 1st of January 1970. Although I suspect I will have to re-grab all my data and re-insert, is there any way to convert my timestamps to an appropriate precision?

Hello, is it possible to enable UDP in influx docker image?
hi is there a gitter for telegraf? is there an ETA for telegraf 1.8?
Patrick Callahan
can I use capturing groups in InfluxDB's regexes, to put something I can use later in the query or create a virtual/temporary field or tag based on what gets captured?

I've got some data that's in kind of a bad format; some things are stored in the name

I'd like to pull that stuff out so that I can use it to clean up some output in Grafana

Patrick Callahan
it does appear to accept named capturing groups in the regex themselves, but idk if it actually does anything with them
Shan Desai
Hi all, What is an optimal way to dump series back into the db after changing a field value? A detailed question is available on SE and is open for bounty if you are SE user
if we dont take the backup of influxdb , but if we have whole /var/lib/influxdb folder can we restore the database
Ryan Watts
Greetings, is it possible to setup an ingestion pipeline with influxdb.
for example if I would like to ingest data from an http endpoint and schedule that ingestion.
For example pulling data from google analytics http endpoint and having that data scaled to pull daily
Hello. I'm building an app using Python which should collect some metrics from network devices and store it in influxdb. I need to understand which way is better and why? Send the data directly to influxdb or send it to telegraf instead.

Hey guys, I'm setting up promethues remote storage to influx.. got stuck at issue and there is an open Pr to fix this issue: influxdata/influxdb#10591 can someone please take a look and merge this?
Konstantin Bläsi
do you typically encode the unit of the field value into the field key for example "energy_total_kWh" or do you use tag key/values for example "energy_total_unit" => "kWh" ?
Konstantin Bläsi
tags make more sense to me if the unit can change (micro, milli, kilo, mega, giga, ...) :D
but I wonder if that's of any use to tools like grafana? Should I just make sure values all use the same unit and adjust them as needed?
Poul H. Sørensen
I perfer to use the basic SI units without any prefix, energy_total 10000000 (Wh). I have previously seen 10 kMB (10 000 Mega Bytes) because the measurement was "MB" and not "B" - to make it worse (it was an old system) and I think it should have been 10 kiMiB...
10 737 418 240 Bytes (10 240 MiB).
It may cause trouble when presenting and/or calculating stuff with different "prefix" - (swap in Bytes, memory i MB and disk space in GiB)
my .1€ : go for SI standard units and let big data handle the rest...
Poul H. Sørensen
And I would use the field to represent the measurement, whether it is "energy_total", "energy_total_kWh" or "energy_total_TWh"

Hi everyone,

I’ve nearly pulled out all my hair and on my 10th reinstall on Ubuntu. I am trying to set up a Grafana - Telegraf - Influx dB dedicated server.

The first step is to install InfluxDB. However after a vanilla install of Ubuntu, I cannot get Influx DB (having installed via the Influx DB website Sudo apt install influxdb, then the curl update).

I get the error

Failed to connect to http://localhost:8086: Get http://localhost:8086/ping: dial tcp getsockopt: connection refused Please check your connection settings and ensure ‘influxd’ is running.

Systemctl status Influxdb shows that Influx is currently running fine?

ubuntu 16.04 and influxdb 1.7.4
@ArABd_gitlab It may not be of help to you but I installed Home Assistant ( on a vanilla install of Ubuntu 18.04.2 . Hass.Io installs itself in Docker containers, then once installed you can install Influx and Grafana as Addons. Although I haven't do it myself I believe you can install Telegraph as well.
I am no expert in Linux or docker but the Hass.IO system works brilliantly well and is very well supported. It may be a method you could adopt to achieve your goals.

quick question
Is there any chance that when writing large data segments, a application can grab the incomplete batch write data in the middle of the transaction?
Or is influx working like other sql databases where the data isn't available until after the full batch points is written?
Hi guys, can someone help me? I have InfluxDB - Telegraf - Grafana setup on a high avabiliaty cluster, with Lustre Filesystem on them. My telegraf agent is collecting filesystem shared stats, but on the database on InfluxDB there are none of those data.
I'm using inputs.lustre2 for this
