I’m trying to save some data in an influxdb measurement with a specific RP but for some reason the data is not being saved. I’ve been trying to figure this out for several days and I’m almost certain it’s a bug (I also opened an issue on github)
To reproduce my issue, create a database and create a non-default retention policy on it:
create database stocks CREATE RETENTION POLICY "trades_policy" ON main DURATION 30d REPLICATION 1
Then try to add data using the API:
curl -i -XPOST 'http://localhost:8086/write?db=stocks&rp=trades_policy' --data-binary 'raw,host=server01,region=us-west value=0.64'
Now if you check measurement
raw you wont find any data inserted in it and no errors are logged whatsoever.
I tried to change the name of the rp in the query to a rp that doesn’t exist and it raised an error however no errors are raised if the rp name is correct.
I also tried to remove the RP param altogether and it worked. There’s something wrong with that influx does internally with the RP. I also tried the influx python driver and tried to do the above query using the library and the same thing happened.
I also checked to make sure that the RPs aren’t quickly deleting the data after its being inserted and therefore leading me to believe that the data isn’t being inserted, however that isn’t the case either. The RP I have has a duration of 72 hours.
