Influxdb oss inspect export-lp

We’re using
InfluxDB 2.0.8 (git: e91d41810f) build_date: 2021-08-13T18:22:30Z
and trying to migrate to influxcloud.

running this command here:
influxd inspect export-lp
–bucket-id [REDACTED]
–engine-path ./engine
–output-path ./backup/export.lp
–start 2021-10-01T00:00:00Z
–end 2022-12-31T23:59:59Z

and getting:
{“level”:“info”,“ts”:1680726037.1930377,“caller”:“inspect/export_lp.go:219”,“msg”:“exporting TSM files”,“tsm_dir”:“engine/data/[REDACTED]”,“file_count”:0}
{“level”:“info”,“ts”:1680726037.1931016,“caller”:“inspect/export_lp.go:315”,“msg”:“exporting WAL files”,“wal_dir”:“engine/wal/[REDACTED]”,“file_count”:0}
{“level”:“info”,“ts”:1680726037.193116,“caller”:“inspect/export_lp.go:204”,“msg”:“export complete”}

but the file export.lp is really small (23B) even thought we know there’s data there, is there anything missing? thanks

Hello @Martin23,
i’m confused is your data not existing with export.lp? Or are you looking for a way to verify whether or not it is?
To verify if the data is there you could try writing it to InfluxDB and querying it.
Thank you for your clarification

Well, I’m pretty sure the data is not in there. There’s only 23B and the original dataset is ~80GB. Do you know if there’s anything wrong with export-lp for that build?
