I am dumping switch data into an InfluxDB database. This is going in based on the switch model - currently I have two models, and multiple switches under each. The tags for each model are the same.
My measurements and tags look like this (with a truncated list of tags):
us24 - name - mac - port_idx us24poe250 - name - mac - port_idx
Both have the same tags. There are two models though -
My goal on the dashboard is to be able to have a single variable -
name - that allows users to select a device to see information about. Unfortunately, it looks like I need to create two variables, one for each measurement:
SHOW TAG VALUES FROM "us24" WITH KEY = "name"
SHOW TAG VALUES FROM "us24poe250" WITH KEY = "name"
Is there a way that I can combine these to a single variable? I’d love to be able to select
name and it will appropriate query the right measurement.
For example if I have two switches that are
us24 with names
switch2 and two switches that are
us24poe250 with names
switch4, if I select
name = switch3, then the
us24poe250 measure is queried. But, if I select
name = switch2 then
us24 is used?
In this case, there’d only be a single option for the user to select -
