Duplicate field names with '_1' suffix

#1

We started getting a duplicate field in our data with a _1 appended to its name. What could that be indicating? The code that does the insertions of that field has not changed. It’s still inserting on the field name without the _1 suffix.

What puts the numbered suffix on there and how do we make it not do that?

Duplicate names in the column headings of influx query output with a “_1” appended indicate that there is a field and a tag with the same name.
