I finally managed to get access to the upgraded database (after upgrading and migrating from 1.8 to 2.3). First, I am a bit confused about buckets and the new concepts but I managed to get my Telegraf clients running and communicating with InfluxDB. I now have to rewrite all the Grafana dashboards, but that’s life.
However, I have a bigger problem: I cannot see the old (migrated) data anywhere. When I executed
influx upgrade, it created a new InfluxDB v2 database which is 20GB big (the size of the original data). I was asked for a primary bucket, which I named
telegraf but that’s empty. It is now getting filled from other clients, but my old
server_metrics database is nowhere.
This is how my buckets look like:
tgal@ecap-s010:~/command-centre$ influx bucket list --org ECAP ID Name Retention Shard group duration Organization ID Schema Type 08850f6a99c516d4 _monitoring 168h0m0s 24h0m0s 6357f43a8209ef21 implicit 57345e3d0259b7a9 _tasks 72h0m0s 24h0m0s 6357f43a8209ef21 implicit 63422b7123b3a995 telegraf infinite 168h0m0s 6357f43a8209ef21 implicit tgal@ecap-s010:~/command-centre$ influx org list ID Name 6357f43a8209ef21 ECAP
and this is where the migrated data was written to (not the ideal place but I’ll move it later):
root@ecap-s010:~/.influxdb_v2# du -sh * 4.0K configs 4.0K config.toml 21G engine 56K influxd.bolt root@ecap-s010:~/.influxdb_v2# du -sh engine/* 21G engine/data 12M engine/wal root@ecap-s010:~/.influxdb_v2# du -sh engine/data/* 21G engine/data/d3f9fac6e68e4725 20K engine/data/f77701b9c3a45d06
Any idea where to get access to that
telegraf bucket only contains a few datapoints which were collected today.
