I have been trying to use the disk-based indexing for a while now. The following line is in the [data] section of my influxdb.conf:
index-version = “tsi1”
I have completely deleted my database (more than once), updated to influxdb 1.3.7, and tried a few variations in the config file. Nonetheless all the log messages I’m seeing from influxdb say “engine=tsm1”, and there are many claiming it failed to allocate enough memory.
And as a bonus, my [udp] data source is suddenly causing “operation not permitted” messages to appear in the log, after months of working just fine.
