When you want to spot hosts, applications, containers, plant equipment, or sensors that are behaving differently from others, you can use the Median Absolute Deviation (MAD) algorithm to identify when a time series is “deviating from the pack”. In this tutorial, we’ll identify anomalous hosts using mad() — the Flux implementation of MAD — from a Third Party Flux Package called anaisdg/anomalydetection.

In a factory environment, collecting data to gain useful insights from various sources is challenging because it requires connecting to many different types of automation systems, plcs and devices that often speak different languages. This is the problem that German industrial software company, inray (specialized in data communication between software systems and components in Industry 4.0, IoT and IIoT) set out to solve for its customers.

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.

The objective of this workshop will be to introduce participants to the RED and USE monitoring methodologies. We will compare and contrast the two methodologies. Care will be taken to highlight best practices associated with each methodology. The workshop will culminate in participants designing schema and using flux to create relevant visualizations of their data.
