i am collecting data from telegraf plugins into influxDB. the data was reporting as integer since the begining, but one day it started reporting as float and now i see the below error in the logs:
: field type conflict: input field “pid_count” on measurement “procstat_lookup” is type float, already exists as type integer dropped=416; discarding points
after reading some threads on google i came to know that Types for fields are done at the shard level so each shard can have a different type.
how can i identify those shards that has float type data so that i can delete them and data loading may start again.
