influxd inspect dump-wal

The influxd inspect dump-wal command outputs data from Write Ahead Log (WAL) files for debugging purposes. Given at least one WAL file path as an argument, the tool parses and prints out the entries in each file.

Usage

influxd inspect dump-wal [flags]

Output details

The --find-duplicates flag determines the influxd inspect dump-wal output.

Without --find-duplicates, the command outputs the following for each file:

  • The file name
  • For each entry in a file: - The type of the entry ([write] or [delete-bucket-range]) - The formatted entry contents

With --find-duplicates, the command outputs the following for each file):

  • The file name
  • A list of keys with timestamps in the wrong order

Flags

Flag Description
--find-duplicates Ignore dumping entries; only report keys in the WAL that are out of order.
-h --help Help for the dump-wal command.

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.
