SHOW TAG VALUES throws invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference

grafana
influxdb
#1

Hi,
I’m running grafana (v4.6.3) and influxdb (1.5.0) on two docker containers.
I’ve created a dashboard on Grafana with a template that queries Influx for tag values.
SHOW TAG VALUES WITH KEY=“action.primaryOssName” where “action.primaryVendor” =~ /^$vendor$/

Sometimes, I can’t quite point out when, the template will stop show options and return:
{"results":[{"statement_id":-1,"error":"SHOW TAG VALUES WITH KEY = \"action.primaryOssName\" WHERE \"action.primaryVendor\" =~ /^.*$/ [panic:runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference]"}]}

I ran ‘docker logs’ on the influxdb container and found the following error logs:

ts=2018-03-18T05:41:51.130106Z lvl=info msg="Executing query" log_id=06uNqYgl000 service=query query="SHOW TAG VALUES ON cellwize WITH KEY = \"action.primaryOssName\" WHERE (\"action.primaryVendor\" =~ /^.*$/) AND (_tagKey = 'action.primaryOssName')"

This will be fixed in 1.5.1: https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb/issues/9548

#3

We have updated our influx to 1.5.2 and still see the error. Couldn’t paste the error message here as there is a limit for a new user :frowning:

#4

Can you paste the error into a gist or put it on a pastebin/whatever and link it back here?

Sorry Mark. False alarm. After upgrade to 1.5.2, failed to restart influxdb.
