OK…so we’re getting closer -
im now receiving this error
[outputs.influxdb]: when writing to [http://xx.x.x.xxx/xxxx]: received error partial write: field type conflict: input field “input kw” on measurement “snmp” is type integer, already exists as type string dropped=1 discarding points
looking at my table i have using SHOW FIELD KEYS ON “telegraf” FROM “snmp
my field is input kw but its type is string - so im not sure where the conflict is.
i am also getting this for KVA field as well,
I’m assuming i need to delete the existing fields from the table so no data is present and then re add them with the conversion, am i right in this thinking, also if i am right how would i go about doing this “safely”
Any help again greatly appreciated.
