Ted Dunning – Very High Bandwidth Time Series Database Implementation
This talk will describe our work in creating time series databases with very high ingest rates (over 100 million points / second) on very small clusters. Starting with openTSDB and the off-the-shelf version of MapR-DB, we were able to accelerate ingest by >1000x. I will describe our techniques in detail and talk about the architectural changes required. We are also working to allow access to openTSDB data using SQL via Apache Drill. In addition, I will talk about how this work has implications regarding the much fabled Internet of Things. And tell some stories about the origins of open source big data in the 19th century at sea.
