I’m finding that Kapacitor is extremely inconsistent with its behavior - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t seem to be working, I poke around, reload the tasks, restart, and then some of the alerts start working.
I’m now reasonably convinced that the issues are somehow related to the subscriptions in influxdb, so a few questions:
- Are there supposed to be kapacitor subscriptions to “name: _internal”, retention policy ‘monitor’?
- Can I safely delete these? I have found some bug reports that this corrupted the influxdb, and this would be extremely painful for me…
Possible clue - In the influxdb log messages can see kapacitor very frequently querying influxdb for its subscriptions.
