InfluxDB Storage Engine Internals

Tuesday 3:20PM-4:10PM

@ Sky Suite 2

Open Source Databases

50 minutes conference



In this presentation I take a deep dive into the open source storage engine inside InfluxDB. More than just a single storage engine, InfluxDB is two engines in one: the first for time series data and the second, an index for metadata. I'll delve into the optimizations for achieving high write throughput, compression and fast reads for both the raw time series data and the metadata.
