Telegraf and Field Type Conflict


I am getting below errors in my Telegraf logs, does Telegraf drop the entire batch that contain any datapoint with field type conflict error or will it just drop that datapoint?

2017-05-03T21:25:03Z E! Field type conflict, dropping conflicted points: {“error”:“field type conflict: input field “read_bytes” on measurement “procstat” is type float, already exists as type integer dropped=1”}
