DELETE single datapoint takes 15 seconds

DELETE WHERE time = 1496677645917952139

Consistently takes 15 sec. Whether the point exists or not, via http client or directly in influx shell.

There are only about 52000 points in the entire db.

Btw, I’ve read: Design Insights and Tradeoffs in InfluxDB | InfluxData Documentation Archive

But 15 seconds seems a bit excessive, no? Could someone explain why a delete would take this long? Thanks.

Yes. We agree…this is excessive. We’ve been working on improving the delete consistency and performance across the 1.3 and now 1.4 releases. I’d suggest grabbing the latest and giving it a shot.
