Verbose debug logs influxDB write


Hello Folks,
I am trying to bring up a DB instance and write to it using a go client. The go client seems to write the data as well.

tail -f /usr/local/var/log/influxdb.log - shows a susccess code.,

[httpd] ::1 - test [23/Aug/2017:10:33:21 -0700] “POST /write?consistency=&db=rush&precision=ms&rp= HTTP/1.1” 204 0 “-” “InfluxDBClient” 28c659fb-8829-11e7-8028-000000000000 9813

However, the DB instance is empty and I don`t see any other logs or debug options to see what am I doing wrong

use rush
Using database rush

DB is running on OSX 10.12.6

Where to do I see detailed logs w.r.t DB write or client event. I turned on most of the logging options via config files.


It seems you are missing the measurement; the above only shows that you have a database name “rush” and no details on measurements. Can you run the following commands under influx:

use rush (to switch the database)
show measurements (measurements are like tables where the actual data resides)
If it return nothing that means; you have no data available. However if it return some names; you can perform:

select * from


Thank you Sbains, I was missing the table name. Albe to write the data now.
