Release Announcement: InfluxDB Enterprise 1.9.3

Navigate to:

A new maintenance release for InfluxDB Enterprise is now available.

Key highlights for this InfluxDB Enterprise release include:


Flux Advancement

  • This latest update moves Flux from version 0.113 to 0.120.1.
    • Updated the window implementation to use interval.Window
    • Added today() function
    • Added table.fill() function to fill empty tables with a single row
  • Please join the discussion about Flux via InfluxCommunity or Slack

Packaging Improvements

  • Rename ARM RPMs with yum-compatible names
  • Convert ARM arch names for RPMs during builds via Docker

Operational Improvements

  • An exponential back-off has been added to anti-entropy repair.
  • Logging has been added to the compaction process to assist with debugging and supportability.
  • A new total-buffer-bytes configuration parameter has been added to subscriptions. This option is intended to help alleviate out-of-memory errors.
  • Improvements to heap memory usage when the hinted-handoff queue grows.
  • Addressed issue which prevents rewriting fields.idx unnecessarily.
  • Non-UTF-8 characters are no longer sent to subscriptions.
  • Fixed SHOW SHARDS showing expiration time for shard groups with no expiration.

Again, there is no corresponding InfluxDB OSS 1.9 release. While we continue to make improvements to the InfluxDB 1.x code line and these are being included within InfluxDB Enterprise releases, we are guiding our community users to InfluxDB 2.x at this time.  Of course, you can always build InfluxDB 1.x from source code, if necessary. InfluxDB 2.x does include 1.x compatible interfaces to allow for reads and writes using the 1.x API. The latest open source release can be found on our downloads page.

For our InfluxDB Enterprise customers, log in to the InfluxDB Enterprise portal and download the binaries from there.  If you need more help?  Contact support.

If you find issues or have questions, please join our InfluxDB Community Slack, post them in our InfluxDB GitHub Repo or our Community Site and we will take a look.
