Logging level=debug ignored

I am trying to enable debug logging on an InfluxDB 1.8.2 server.
I have set the following in my influxdb.conf file

  level = "debug"

However, every single line written to influxdb.log says level=info
I see no level=debug lines at all.

Any idea what I am doing wrong here?

Hello @James_Paige,
Thanks for your question. I think you might find this thread useful Trying to run influxdb in debug mode using docker ? Let me know! Thank you.

Oh, I follow. I might not be seeing any “debug” messages because influxdb simply doesn’t have any to emit. That is unfortunate, but it would explain what I am seeing.
