This week I have been working on implementing and testing an Elasticsearch database for testing against InfluxDB. Have made tests for all measurements except the mode traceroute ones, as I haven't found an easy way to do this in Elasticsearch. Results seem to indicate that Elasticsearch tends to come in at second best in most tests.

Have also been encountering a lot of issues with memory and crashing, and am not finding Elasticsearch to be very reliable under lots of concurrent searches. I don't think Elasticsearch will be the right choice for AMP. Despite the positive results from this CERN evaluation http://cds.cern.ch/record/2011172/files/LHCb-TALK-2015-060.pdf, it doesn't seem to outperform Influx in speed or reliability consistently for our use case.
