Grafana limits the list of measurements while typing to 100. The last version I had didn’t do this. I’ve got 200 or so measurements in my main table, so now everyone is asking me why their data is deleted… how can I change this limit?
This change was introduced recently as a performance improvement:
Why do you need to see more than 100 entries in a dropdown list? The recommendation is to use tags to keep the numbers down - see Paul Dix’s comment.
We have 200 or so sensors that we’re recording to Influx… It’s been suggested that I have this as one table and then have the sensor names as tags, but then that would eliminate the drop down capability altogether.
I completely understand the performance improvement issue, but it would be nice if we could adjust that limit. I’ve never had an speed issue with the full list.
I don’t follow. Why would having the sensor names as tags eliminate the drop down capability?
I don’t either… I thought that was the case I thought the drop down was to show sensors only and then you would have to select by tag -?
I’ll try switching to tags in the near future and see how that works
