For each data point can the number of measurements change?

In my application I am writing five measurements for each data point. I have a situation where I only need to write two data points. Can I do that or do I need to add dummy (aka 0) measurements for the null measurements?

My guess is it is ok as my queries for last,max, min etc will still work with the data retrieved even iv some points do not have measurement values.

Hello @dgoadby,
Yah that should be fine. You dont need to fill each measurement each time you write data.

Many thanks for your swift reply.

I thought that I might be safe doing this but I did not feel happy doing it to a large database without checking.
