Guaranteed persistence of data in InfluxDB

influxdb

#1

I read all the documents on https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.7 but couldn’t find an answer on this one.

Does InfluxDB guarantee the persistence of each point or can it happen that single points are dropped because of e.g. performance issues?

For example DalmatinerDB doesn’t guarantee it, TimescaleDB offers a configuration option for that.

The short answer is that as soon as you receive the successful response code from the API, the point is durable. Short of hardware failure, you don’t have to worry about losing points.

We will work on updating the docs to reflect this.
