Weekly Report 25/01/2016




This week I began investigating how easy it was to store data from influxdb on an external disk, and found that Influx has put out a new update (0.10.0) in Beta which provides functionality to backup and restore data. Combining this with Retention Policies means that we will be able to easily send data to a backup disk and have it drop off the main storage system after a given amount of time.

I have begun to implement InfluxDB into the AMP system, and have got the dataparsers sending data to influx for every test except traceroute, while still using PostgreSQL for information about streams. I have also added code to automatically generate continuous queries and retention policies on setup. Plans now are to get client queries using the InfluxDB data.
