i dont have too much experience with influxdb. All the instances i have looked seem to have:
> show field keys name: _ fieldKey fieldType -------- --------- f64 float
thats the only command that seems to do anything. I know i have data in there as i have grafana graphs populating from my prometheus/influx.
my question is how can i search for what series are present via command line?
running ./influxdb gets me to interface. I can run show databases and see my db
> show databases name: databases name ---- prod_influxdb
the show series command works but , but gives me pages and pages of output spitting out tons of hoard to read output. im sure this puts a massibe strain on the server as well. all data is in  brackets and have start with _,_name.
i know there is consistent series(?) keys(?) in there, how can i view a list of just those for example cpu_load, mem_load, disk_load (pretending the exist in my db)?
all the documentation I read starts with putting in data first then retrieving it. I need to get at the data safely (not generate a lot of load on the server) parsing for limited data set.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
