Freeing disk space on InfluxDB


We’ve been using InfluxDB for about 2yrs and so far we’ve had great success with it. Recently though we’ve started to run low on disk space and I like to know how I can clean up some of the old data and reclaim space.

Our installation currently has 13 databases, the largest has 1900 measurements with 900K series and takes up roughly 1.5TB. There are no retention policies in place. I assume the first place to start would be to setup a retention policy but I’m not sure how to do that and clear up the old data

Any help would be appriciated
