Overview & Documentation of InfluxDB

influxdb

(Janina Tritschler) #1

InfluxDB is a time series database built from the ground up to handle high write and query loads. It is the second piece of the TICK stack. InfluxDB is meant to be used as a backing store for any use case involving large amounts of timestamped data

More in the documentation.

Hint

InfluxDB is just a backend. It needs a visualisation frontend/API where Grafana comes into play.
