25 April - 9:50 AM - 10:35 AM at Main Scenario
At Percona we see time series databases as a trend of 2017, hence the idea of having quick 5-minute lightning talks from projects that we think are stellar, followed by a quick panel on time series data stores in general. We discuss the "why a new time series data store" question, why these are ideal solutions, users, as well as where they see the future of this space.
27 April - 1:50 PM - 2:40 PM at Room 203
Prometheus is an open-source monitoring and alerting system that has quickly gained popularity over the last two years (which includes sophisticated monitoring of MySQL database servers). One of the components of Prometheus is a time-series database (TSDB) embedded into the monitoring server. The TSDB uses a highly domain-specific query language called PromQL.
