In highly concurrent systems, it is important that you can schedule work to be done and be able to collect those results upon completion.

In this talk, we take a look at both log-linear and cumulative histograms and how they provide advantages over storing data as quantiles, averages, and other histogram implementations, such as linear and fixed-bucket.
IRONdb is the scalable, durable TSDB, now with a Grafana Datasource plugin. Unlock the power of Grafana's heatmaps and histograms.
