I’ve been playing with InfluxDB v2 and after a bit of experimentation, I think I finally have what I want. (Or do I? More below.)
At this point, I want to “reset” the Influx bucket. Suggestions on best way to do that? I was thinking I’d stop the IoTaWatt uploader, rename the bucket to “*-old”, create a new bucket with the same original name, and then restart the uploader. The one thing I’m not sure of is…will the IoTaWatt resync all the past history again (I have the start date as the day before I brought my IoTaWatt online)? I’m suspecting it keeps track of its uploads and will re-start at the time I stopped it.
If my suppositions are true, then I’m guessing I will have to delete the uploader and configure it as new?
Do I have what I want? Please pipe up if you’ve found some other metrics useful:
- watts for all CTs (11 branch circuits and 2 mains)
- voltage for voltage reference
- power factor for 2 mains
I figure I’ll do the math in Influx or Grafana for things like Total Watts (addition of two mains) and “everything else” (two mains minus 11 branch circuits), which I currently have onboard the IoTaWatt for the Graph+ graphs.
