InfluxDB is super slow to start on Raspberry Pi

Hi all!

Hopefully somewhat simple question: influxdb is just extremely slow to start on my RaspberryPi I’ll enter the command influx and literally just sit around for a good 10 minutes until I get the command line prompt.

This has a cascade on effect during reboot when none of my python scripts that write to influxdb or my Grafana visualiser can load properly and basically means I just have to sit around for a bit after each reboot.

Surely this user error on my part somewhere along the line, but anyone have any ideas?

I’ve tried re-installing Influx twice, same result both times.
