This section contains some ideas for troubleshooting common problems experienced with Promscale.

Backfilling data which has not been ingested into Prometheus can cause the PromQL dashboard to not show Promscale data.

To fix this error, enable the read_recent option for Promscale in the Prometheus configuration's remote_read section. This ensures that backfilled data is shown in the PromQL dashboard:

- url: "http://<CONNECTOR-ADDRESS>:9201/read"
read_recent: true

For more information, see the Prometheus remote read documentation.
