tail() function

tail() limits each output table to the last n rows.

tail() produces one output table for each input table. Each output table contains the last n records before the offset. If the input table has less than offset + n records, tail() outputs all records before the offset.

Function type signature
(<-tables: stream[A], n: int, ?offset: int) => stream[A]
For more information, see Function type signatures.

Parameters

n

(Required) Maximum number of rows to output.

offset

Number of records to skip at the end of a table table before limiting to n. Default is 0.

tables

Input data. Default is piped-forward data (<-).

Examples

Output the last three rows in each input table

import "sampledata"

sampledata.int()
    |> tail(n: 3)

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.
