thanks for answering!
Yea i tried this and it works, however it feels a bit like a workaround. So you cannot create a completely new timescale, but you can start f.e. from 0 and filter by year 1970 to get the results…
When I do this I can read the data in the browser with the suggested custom time period you mentioned, but when I wanna read the data via c# query my memory gets fuller and fuller with no results visible…?
here’s the code
var ownflux = "from(bucket:\""+bucket+ "\") |> range(start: 0) |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == \"" + measurement+"\")";
var fluxTables = await client.GetQueryApi().QueryAsync(ownflux, org);
var fluxRecords = fluxTable.Records;
(full code is visible in my other thread)
for people who might have the same issue I share the little code snippet :
long UnixTimeNanoseconds(int added_minute, int substracted_years)
DateTime epochStart = new DateTime(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, DateTimeKind.Utc);
return (DateTime.UtcNow.AddYears(substracted_years).AddMinutes(added_minute) - epochStart).Ticks * 100;
