LIMIT and SLIMIT clauses
LIMIT to limit the number of rows returned per InfluxQL group.
SLIMIT to limit the number of series
returned in query results.
LIMIT clause limits the number of rows to return from each InfluxQL group.
If the query doesn’t include a
GROUP BY clause,
the entire result set is considered a single group.
If a query groups data by time,
limits are applied after aggregate and selector operations are applied to each
SELECT_clause FROM_clause [WHERE_clause] [GROUP_BY_clause] [ORDER_BY_clause] LIMIT N
- N: Maximum number of points to return from each InfluxQL group.
Nis greater than the number of points in a group, all points from the group are returned.
The following examples use the Get started home sensor sample data.

InfluxQL is being rearchitected to work with the InfluxDB IOx storage engine.
This process is ongoing and some InfluxQL features, such as
SLIMIT are still
being implemented. For more information, see
InfluxQL feature support.
