Flux QL - not all data points are shown


I’m using Influxdb 1.8.1 and Grafana 7.1.0 and try to use the influxdb with the new Flux QL. Therefore I’m created a new datasource and have created a query to get the same graph I already created with the normal Influx QL, what worked out fine witout any problems.

The problem is, when I now change the time range to e.g. last 24 hours, the graph based on Flux QL does not show all data points.

My assumption is that this behavoiur is related to the “Max Data Points” value, which is empty, but in gray the value of the possible points are mentioned.


When I check the result with the Query Instpector, I get more than the mentioned 1810 values. When I change now, the “Max Data Points” value to the value I get with the Query Inspector I get all data points.

The question is, how can I always get all data points? Or is this a bug?


I guess there seems to be a bug.

I have a similar problem but I miss data points not at the end but in the middle:

First picture shows a time range from 2020-08-10 00:00:00 to 2020-08-17 23:59:59

The second picture runs with the same eight queries but for a time range from 2020-08-11 00:00:00 to 2020-08-18 23:59:59

I’m not sure if it’s a bug in grafana or the influxdb.
In chronograf I get the data and it’s the same time frame where no data is shown for all eight queries.

In the query inspector I can see that the data is already missing in the response, so it does not seem to be a visualization problem.

When inspecting the data stream with wireshark the time frame is also missing:

So i guess it seems more than the influxdb is not delivering all the data.
