InfluxDB Anti-Entropy API

Note: The Anti-Entropy API is available from the meta nodes and is only available when the Anti-Entropy service is enabled in the data node configuration settings. For information on the configuration settings, see Anti-Entropy settings.

Use the Anti-Entropy service in InfluxDB Enterprise to monitor and repair entropy in data nodes and their shards. To access the Anti-Entropy API and work with this service, use influx-ctl entropy (also available on meta nodes).

The base URL is:
