Need help when we are using gitcommitid as tag:


Unfortunately, influxdb creates a new series for every combination of tag values. With the commitid, we have a tag with a very high number of different values increasing the series count in influxdb and finally increasing the mem usage of influxdb. What is the recommendation in this case(if we are using the commitid as tag??) ?


I think we chatted about this in another location, but I want to make sure we cover all the bases.

With high cardinality cases, we recommend making sure TSI is enabled. It helps performance immensely if you must have high cardinality datasets.
