Centos 7 server influxdb.service heavy load on server


i have centos 7 box & as soon as influxdb started on the box the load avg goes up & the grafana page does not show the graphs

service seems running

var/log/messages have:

i started & enable httpd & the load now coming down

But i still see:

influxd: ts=2019-02-07T06:59:32.763939Z lvl=error msg="[500] - \"[shard 418] error opening memory map for file /var/lib/influxdb/data/telegraf/autogen/418/000010129-000000001.tsm: mmapAccessor: invalid indexStart\"" log_id=0DTgpCfW000 service=httpd

And i do not see the graphs

I think influx db has gown & need trimming … i am not sure how to do that & how can i tell it to save 30 days data only say…



i am running 1.5.2-1


Hi @admink,

Your TSM file is corrupted. I believe the only thing you can do is remove the corrupted file:

rm /var/lib/influxdb/data/telegraf/autogen/418/000010129-000000001.tsm

influx_inspect dumptsm -dir /var/lib/influxdb may return some additional information, but unfortunately we cannot recover the corrupted file.
