Conflict Resolution: greater value?

Hi,

according to https://www.influxdata.com/influxdb-clustering-design-neither-strictly-cp-or-ap/

“Conflict resolution only comes into play if the user is performing updates to existing data points. Our scheme for dealing with conflict resolution is simple: the greater value wins.”

I guess, the newer value wins, not the greater one, right?

Regards,

Yes, the newer value wins. I believe “greater” was a typo in @pauldix’s blog post.

The current docs state:

If you submit a new point with the same measurement, tag set, and timestamp as an existing point, the field set becomes the union of the old field set and the new field set, where any ties go to the new field set.
