From the documentation I see the limit is 64k for all types of strings – https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.7/write_protocols/line_protocol_reference/#data-types
I have the same String as a tag value and as a field value. What I observe is the write to tag fails with below message
“max key length exceeded: 715919 > 65535”
whereas the filed doesn’t get written to the DB neither throws any error.
I want to know if there is an alternative way to store large strings and still be indexed as a tag and searchable as field.
