InfluxData prides itself on prioritizing developer happiness. A large part of maintaining developer happiness is providing client libraries that allow users to interact with the database through the language and library of their choosing. Data analysis is the task most broadly associated with Python use cases, accounting for 58% of Python tasks, so it makes sense that Pandas is the second most popular library for Python users.

Companies are committed to delivering on higher levels of customer satisfaction for their online services. Unfortunately, many organizations trying to support these initiatives take an interrupt-driven approach where they scramble to fix things when they break. However, to manage to these high levels of SLAs, you should take a structured approach in order to reduce the amount of unscheduled downtime by proactively monitoring and managing your systems.

In this technical paper, we’ll compare the performance and features of InfluxDB 1.4.2 vs. Elasticsearch 5.6.3 for common time series workloads, specifically looking at the rates of data ingestion, on-disk data compression, and query performance. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of these technologies for their use case.

In this technical paper, we’ll explore the aspects of scaling clusters of the InfluxEnterprise product, primarily through the lens of write performance of InfluxDB Clusters. This data should prove valuable to developers and architects evaluating the suitability of InfluxEnterprise for their use case, in addition to helping establish some rough guidelines for what those users should expect in terms of write performance in a real-world environment.

Paul will talk about the long-term vision for Flux the language as well as InfluxDB 2.0, Telegraf 2.0 and beyond. He’ll talk about why we’ve decided to create a language, how that plays into polyglot persistence & purpose-built time series databases, and how it enables more complex analytics and processing workloads to drive insights from data not just in InfluxDB, but everywhere.

This talk will show how to use Tasks, Flux, dashboards and monitoring and alerting in InfluxDB 2.0 to create an external service or website monitor. It’ll tie all the work we’ve been doing for the last two years together in a simple example for everyone to use as a template for their own custom monitoring applications built on top of the InfluxDB 2.0 platform.
