Influx DB crashes after task created that runs every 5s


I have created an alert in InfluxDB 2 via the UI and changed it to run from every 5m to every 5s. This caused my instance to crash.

When the influxdb instance is re-started it crashes as the task is overloading it.

Is there a way to edit the frequency of the task back to 5m via the sqllite database?

I am unable to use influxdb cli or the UI as the instance is unresponsive when started.

Thank you!

Hello @nav_323,

I’m not sure what you mean by via the sqlite database.

Is the InfluxDB server running? You can use the API to create a task and update a task:
