Hey all, If you didn’t know already we have just released InfluxDB University. This is an awesome way to learn InfluxDB, Telegraf and Flux inside and out. I recommend starting off with these:
- Telegraf Basics
- InfluxDB Essentials
- Beginner Flux
This will also become the way you get awarded with certifications from us. Check it out, tell us what you think! Class is in Session - Announcing InfluxDB University | InfluxData
Hi, I’ve just started the course “Beginner Flux”.
Unfortunately I stumbled on a first issue. Assignment 2: loading data into InfluxDB.
There is some data that needs to be loaded into a newly created bucket “training” via the line protocol.
When I do that I get a message that data is loaded successfully.
But when I want to explore the data no measurement or tag is found.
Tried it on the free influxdb in the cloud and on an influxdb I’m running locally.
Let me take a look at the line protocol. I suspect the timestamp is back in 2021 / 2020 which might be why the data is successfully loading but you are not seeing it. I will also feed this back to the team
Yes indeed. I expanded the time range to 1 year and now I see the tags.
Okay found the issue. it looks like the Unix converts to Thursday, 20 January 2022 12:00:00. Which would be beyond the 30-day retention policy. I am working with the team on a solution to this. Thanks again @MVdB for raising it.
Let us know your feedback or any troubles you face
@MVdB Thank you so much for reporting this, we really appreciate the feedback. We’ve written a script that writes a new daily dataset so you can always use something current. I recommend trying this assignment again. Hopefully, this helps!
just some quick feedback while going through the intro courses:
- it would be helpful to show some intermediate steps instead of just describing them. that probably sounds vague, but there are some examples where the data are presented in a slide, then the next slide contains the results. some of these examples may have an intermediate representation or state that might be nice to see rather than hear.
- using some demo videos or screencasts instead of static slides would be nice here and there. maybe demonstrating with video/screencast solves the first issue.
- there are typos and inaccuracies in the slides that should just be corrected rather than mentioned in the narration/instruction.
overall, thanks for putting together this content. it’s very helpful.
@rockpapergoat many thanks for taking the time to send us your feedback. Sorry, we didn’t reply sooner we have all been at our company meetup. @ekurze I will start collecting this feedback on product board
all good! thanks for taking the time to put together the materials and make them better.
