[BUG?] Influxdb 2.0 Inactive Tasks Running

Influxdb 2.0.4 keeps sending me notifications from inactive tasks.

  • I’ve a simple check for test purposes and it checks cpu usage and returns status, info.
  • I’ve a simple notification rule which sends notifications every 1m on ANY status.
  • The check is inactive, so I expect it to not run.

Even though it sends once in a minute to the endpoint, it shows the same notification twice. Why?



import "influxdata/influxdb/monitor"
import "influxdata/influxdb/schema"

option task = {name: "CPU Check 2", every: 1m, offset: 10s}

check = {
	_check_id: "0000000000000002",
	_check_name: "CPU Check 2",
	_type: "custom",
	tags: {},
data = from(bucket: "tutorial")
	|> range(start: -1m)
	|> filter(fn: (r) =>
		(r["_measurement"] == "cpu" and r["_field"] == "usage_user" and r["cpu"] == "cpu-total"))
	|> mean()
	|> duplicate(column: "_stop", as: "_time")
	|> last()

	|> schema.fieldsAsCols()
	|> monitor["check"](
		crit: (r) =>
			(r["usage_user"] > 99.9),
		warn: (r) =>
			(r["usage_user"] > 99.8),
		info: (r) =>
			(r["usage_user"] > 1.0),
		ok: (r) =>
			(r["usage_user"] <= 1.0),
		messageFn: (r) =>
			(if r._level == "ok" then "Things are looking good." else "Level: ${r._level} Value: ${string(v: r._value)}%"),
		data: check,

The check is inactive but it still runs every minute. Am I missing something?

If you’re in a position to upgrade to 2.0.6, that would be worth trying. I skimmed the release notes yesterday and although I didn’t spot anything specifically mentioned around fixes for something like this, it may be resolved.
