Is there a way to specify timestamp precision for UDP writes? Currently we only need millisecond precision. And, as a side effect it would fix a client-side issue with python’s strptime() parser which doesn’t like nanoseconds.
Having read the documentation and some forum/github posts I tried setting the udp/precision attribute in /etc/linuxdb/influxdb.conf to ms:
[[udp]] precision = "ms"
However, this broke influxd and it would no longer accept writes of any kind until I took out the precision setting. The documentation is unclear about this.
Any authoritative help would be greatly appreciated, and I apologize in advance if this has already been answered before (I couldn’t find it).
P.S. This is Influxdb v1.4 on Linux
