There is no way to downsample in place. The first challenge is that it
requires deleting many individual raw data points after a month, rather
than dropping entire files from disk, as retention policies do. Individual
deletes are expensive in InfluxDB. They create a tombstone record which
must be purged during a TSM compaction
The second challenge is that any CQ sampling the raw data would pick up the
new downsampled data, too, unless it was written to another field, which
breaks the query compatibility you're looking for.
See https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb/issues/7198 and
https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb/issues/6910 for the discussion of
this feature to date.
