Using influxdb of version 1.7.9 along with grafana for capacity planning. All of a sudden (past 1 month) experiencing high swap usage of the influx process. Below provided the evidence.
top swap using processes which are still running:
6614348 kb /usr/bin/influxd -config /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf
431200 kb /usr/sbin/rsyslogd -n
88920 kb /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-journald
total used free shared buff/cache available
Restarting influx releases the swap, but within some time it’s occupying again. No changes done recently.
Any idea on this?
