Hi @alvarolb
My server is at 100% since the change and does not recover. I can’t work with dashboards


We are very sorry to hear this. This version upgrade has involved and upgrade of the backend time series database InfluxDB, having to adapt to their new query language. It seems that the performance of this language is far inferior to the previous one.

We are currently working on this problem to give you a solution as soon as possible. In the meantime, we suggest that you take a closer look into your dashboards in order to reduce the amount of data retrieved in each one o giving tabs their own dashboard, and avoiding the use of aggregation when not necessary.

Again, sorry for the inconvenience.


thanks @jaimebs
