I need to move my influxdb to a new server to start fresh. From this post you mentioned:
Dropping the database and recreating should give you a clean slate. When you restart the IoTaWatt, did you have the upload history from set prior to 17/03/2019?
You also provided the following steps:
- Click STOP in the influx tab of the status display.
- Wait for the status to change to stopped.
- In the IoTaWatt influx configuration:
Set “upload history from” to 03/17/2019.
Add a tag of “id” with value “iotawatt” to the tag set.
- Click START in the influx tab of the status display.
So what actually triggers the resending of historical data? Can I just set the “upload history from” date to 1/12/2021 which is prior to my History log start? Or is the step of “Add a tag of “id” with value “iotawatt” to the tag set” that triggers the resend of all the historical data? I’m currently not using tags. Or is there a simpler way of doing this? Thanks.
