OFFSET and SOFFSET clauses
OFFSET to specify the number of rows
to skip in each InfluxQL group before returning results.
SOFFSET to specify the number of series
to skip before returning results.
OFFSET clause skips
N rows in each InfluxQL group before returning results.
Offsets honor row limits specified in the
and display the limited number of rows after the specified offset.
OFFSET together to paginate query results.
SELECT_clause FROM_clause [WHERE_clause] [GROUP_BY_clause] [ORDER_BY_clause] [LIMIT_clause] OFFSET N [SLIMIT_clause] [SOFFSET_clause]
- N: Number of rows to skip in each InfluxQL group before returning results.
Notable OFFSET clause behaviors
- If there is no
LIMITclause in a query with an
OFFSETclause, the query returns a single row per InfluxQL group at the specified offset.
- If the query doesn’t include a
GROUP BYclause, the entire result set is considered a single group and is returned in full.
- If a query groups data by time, the offset is applied after aggregate and selector operations are applied to each time window.
- If the
WHEREclause includes a time range and the
OFFSETclause causes InfluxQL to return points with timestamps outside of that time range, InfluxQL returns no results.
The following examples use the Get started home sensor sample data.
Return the nth row
Paginate results by 3 and return the 2nd page of results
Paginate results from each series by 3 and return the 2nd page of each series
InfluxQL is being rearchitected to work with the InfluxDB IOx storage engine.
This process is ongoing and some InfluxQL features, such as
SOFFSET are still
being implemented. For more information, see
InfluxQL feature support.
