limit() function

limit() returns the first n rows after the specified offset from each input table.

If an input table has less than offset + n rows, limit() returns all rows after the offset.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[A], n: int, ?offset: int) => stream[A]

For more information, see Function type signatures.

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
