How prevent influx retention policy remove some important data


#1

Hi
As you know retention policy remove data after while to save more space!
But I need to store some valuable data that may store in influxdb.
is it possible to exclude some data (fields, tags) to store forever?

Thanks,

No, this is not possible. If there is data you need to preserve indefinitely, we recommend storing it in a separate retention policy.
