InfluxDB is an open-source time-series database designed to handle high write and query loads. The platform is part of the TICK (Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf, Kapacitor) stack. InfluxDB can collect, store and process large amounts of timestamped data from different sources. It supports an SQL-like query language for retrieving and aggregating data across time intervals. Since its release in 2013, InfluxDB has found applications in monitoring infrastructure performance, IoT deployments with real-time sensor data analysis and measurement systems that require precise timestamps for numerous data points.
