We are considering changing one of the default configuration options starting with InfluxDB 1.3.0. Essentially, the current behavior is that we enable the storage of database statistics into _internal. However, we see that many customers deploy into production with this still enabled. Our recommendation is to turn off the internal storage of these statistics for your production system.
Therefore, the proposed change to the config option would be to ship with the default setting for store-enable = false. For pre-production environments, you would be required to turn this on.
[monitor] # Whether to record statistics internally. # store-enabled = true
[monitor] # Whether to record statistics internally. # store-enabled = false
Looking for feedback on whether folks think this causes issues/concerns with our community. Please share your thoughts.
