Influxdb periodically stops accepting metrics

Hello Community,

Influx on one of our monitoring VM’s( MON-0-2) periodically stops accepting metrics
There is no evidence of that in the influx logfile.
influx db is still running “influxdb process is running [ OK ]” and a query on the DB is still ok
Clearly no network problem, as we can witness the problem with curl from localhost at the time the problem exists.

At this moment we can’t reproduce the issue but are there any debug commands or actions that can help us to find the rootcause of the issue when it occurs again?

Thanks for your help here.

influx --version
InfluxDB shell version: 1.7.2

telegraf --version
Telegraf 1.9.1 (git: HEAD 20636091)

It could be an issue with whatever is writing to influx. I would turn on the http influx log to monitor if requests to write are still coming in. I would also look at your logs for the writers. In example, if you are running Telegraf, you can set debug to true in telegraf.conf

Hello Esity ,
Thanks for your reply .
Can you tell me how to turn on http influx log to monitor ?
I guess this needs to be configured in /etc/influxdb/influxdb.conf ?
