Influxdb bgpPeerOutTotal float and string types?

hi, it seems that pushing bgpPeerOutTotal from a dell switch it is trying to push it as a string but it was saved already as float for what i can read:

production.ERROR: InfluxDB exception: HTTP Code 400 {“error”:“partial write: field type conflict: input field “bgpPeerOutTotal” on measurement “bgp” is type string, already exists as type float dropped=1”}

any idea on what it could be?

Did you ever get to the bottom of this? We have just experienced this exact same problem on a running LibreNMS instance that suddenly decided to post strings instead of floats - totally wiping out our InfluxDB metrics for 4 days before it self-rectifed???
