What could cause this? Were running on 3.6.0 Enterprise and using single-bin option.

Thanks for reporting this.

First, your data is fine, no harm is happening.

We identified a few ways that a single-bin configuration would arrive at this warning. For each case, this function returns the correct value after printing this warning. We will be demoting this warning in future releases. Until then you will likely want to squelch this warning, to do that:

asadm -e "asinfo -v 'set-log:id=0;particle=critical'"
