The write ahead log seems to be broken both if the configuration is set for a different destination disk and if “wal-fsync-delay” is set to a non-zero value.
Is any one using WAL?
I am running the Docker version 1.8.3
When I configure the “wal-dir” to be on a different SSD drive then the meta and data “dir” influxDB will not initialize successfully on startup. I get this over and over as it keeps restarting:
dir = “/var/lib/influxdb-data2/meta”
dir = “/var/lib/influxdb-data2/data”
wal-dir = “/var/lib/influxdb-data3/wal”
wal-fsync-delay = “10s”
Here is the influxdb log which ends in “influxdb init process failed.”
