Release Announcement: InfluxDB OSS 1.8.4

Navigate to:

A new maintenance release for InfluxDB OSS is available now.

InfluxDB 1.8.4 includes the following fixes and improvements:

  • Exporting Line Protocol
    • influx_inspect export includes a new flag -lponly flag to export data in line protocol format only. This flag excludes comments or data definition language (DDL), like CREATE DATABASE. This new flag allows for easier export and import of data from InfluxDB v1.x to InfluxDB 2.x and InfluxDB Cloud.
  • Expanded Metrics
  • Flux Logging Improvements
    • A new metrics stat_total_allocated has been added to the Flux logging output. This provides information about the memory allocated for an individual query.
    • Durations associated with Flux queries, including the compilation, execution, and total request duration, have been corrected to show the actual values. Previously, these stats were incorrectly logging 0.000ms:
      • stat_total_duration
      • stat_compile_duration
      • stat_execute_duration
    • To ensure Flux logging is enabled, you need to activate the Flux query engine by setting flux-enabled to true and also set flux-log-enabled to true in the InfluxDB configuration file. For more information about InfluxDB logging, see Log and trace with InfluxDB.
  • Other defect fixes
    • Fixed a problem where ArrayFilterCursor was being truncated for multi-block data.
    • Multi-measurement queries now return all applicable series.
