InfluxDB HTTP Code 400 - String to Floats?

We have just encountered a strange problem that we haven’t come across before - our LibreNMS instance has been up and running fine for some time, however, we noticed that our InfluxDB metrics were missing for 5 days and looking at our LibreNMS logs we see…

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”}

This issue seemed to self-rectify - does anyone know if this is a known issue with either Libre or Influx and what the remedy is if any?
