influxd inspect verify-wal

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.6 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.6 documentation.

The influxd inspect verify-wal command analyzes the Write-Ahead Log (WAL) to check if there are any corrupt files. If it finds corrupt files, the command returns the names of those files. It also returns the total number of entries in each scanned WAL file.

Output details
