InfluxDB SQL Queries with Python

Recently InfluxData announced SQL support in InfluxDB Cloud, powered by IOx. Users can now use familiar SQL queries to explore and analyze their time series data. The SQL support was introduced along with the usage of Apache Arrow. Apache Arrow is an open source project used as the foundation of InfluxDB’s SQL support. Arrow provides the data representation, storage format, query processing, and network transport layers. Apache Flight SQL provides a method for interacting with Arrow via SQL.


Profiling Beta for Python and Node.js

A couple months ago, we launched Profiling in alpha for users on Python and Node.js SDKs — today, we’re moving Profiling for Python and Node.js to beta. Profiling is free to use while in beta — more updates to come when we near GA. Profiling is a critical tool for helping catch performance bottlenecks in your code. Sentry’s profiler gets you down to the exact file/line number in your code that is causing a slow-running query.
