GOMAXPROCS in config file not being respected

#1

I might be doing something very silly but it looks like the GOMAXPROCS option in my config file is not being respected.

I have the following entry in my config file :-

reporting-disabled = true
bind-address = "127.0.0.1:8088"
GOMAXPROCS = 8

However, when I start up influxDB, I see the following on stdout :-

[I] 2017-12-19T16:28:26Z InfluxDB starting, version 1.3.5, branch HEAD, commit 9d9001036d3585cf21925c13a57881bc6c8dcc7e
[I] 2017-12-19T16:28:26Z Go version go1.8.3, GOMAXPROCS set to 24
[I] 2017-12-19T16:28:26Z Using configuration at: <path-to-config-file>

I have verified that the path-to-config-file is definitely correct.

Am I missing something very simple?

The documentation is incorrect. I’ve opened an issue in the docs at https://github.com/influxdata/docs.influxdata.com/issues/1356
