I’ve been looking forward to iox to allow us unlimited cardinality and I just set up a new organisation in us-east-1 and began copying some data over to play with it. We use Grafana and flux to query our current TSM backed data and I was expecting the transition from TSM to iox to be transparent.
My immediate problems are:
- the link on this page explaining how to mix sql and flux doesn’t work: Migrate data to the InfluxDB IOx storage engine | InfluxDB Cloud (IOx) Documentation
- this page says flux is supported: Query data | Get started with InfluxDB | InfluxDB Cloud (IOx) Documentation on iox, but the Influx Cloud “data explorer” doesn’t allow any flux, it seems only sql is supported - its very difficult to understand the scope of refactoring required. How can I run flux queries against iox?
- what has happened to tasks? The icon is missing from Influx cloud UI and tasks are critical for us, downsamping data etc.
- similarly, what has happened to alerts?
