Adding multiple fields matching a regular expression

Hi all, using InfluxQL v1 I am trying to sum field values from multiple fields, over a given time range. I am trying this query:

SELECT sum(/^cumulus|rad|sdb$/) as Infra
  FROM WHERE time >= now() - 24h and time <= now() fill(0)

… but this yields 3 columns (Infra_cumulus, Infra_rad, Infra_sdb) - I would simply like them those 3 columns summed up… any suggestion?

I sent through the manual & the examples I could find but I can’t figure out how to write the query.


Hello @franck102,
It’s good to see you back!

hmm its been so long since I’ve used InfluxQL lol. Most of our users use 2.x and Flux now.
are Infra_cumulus, Infra_rad, Infra_sdb all fields?
I think it would look like:

SELECT sum_1 + sum_2
    (SELECT SUM("field1") AS sum_1, SUM("field2") AS sum_2 FROM WHERE time >= now() - 24h and time <= now() fill(0))

But I’m not 100% sure…(yikes it’s been a while) Can you please give it a try and let me know?

Alternatively if you’re using 1.x, then you can try the following flux query (just fyi).

from(bucket: "energy ")
  |> range(start:-24h)
  |> filter(fn: (r) => r["_measurement"] == " iota_06.rt_energy")
  |> filter(fn: (r) => r["_field"] == "field1" or  r["_field"] == "field2")
  |> group()
  |> sum()
