Drop Measurements Query

influxdb
#1

Documentation: “A successful DROP MEASUREMENT query returns an empty result.”

If the measurement exists and the drop is successful, the result is empty. On the other hand if the measurement does not exist for some reason e.g an earlier drop, the result is still empty.

Shouldn’t the db flag that the measurement doesn’t exist instead of a false positive result ?
