I am using Influxdb v1.7.8 running in a docker-compose environment. Everything works fine, I have successfully inserted several million points using the HTTP api and visualized them in Grafana.
But while trying to implement a backup routine I need some help. I execute the backup as follows:
docker-compose exec -T influxdb influxd backup -portable /var/lib/influxdb/backup
The command is executed successfully, 18 files get created. But all of them are nearly empty (1KB), the data is definately not contained in these files.
What is happening here?
Thanks and best regards
