ElasticSearch for higher frequency time series data


(mikesam460) #1

1> Let's assume the time series data comes from distributed nodes like we
want to collect CPU counter on 100's of servers in the DC at high
frequency(4 times a sec). Does anybody have any experience using
ElasticSearch as the time series data storage and query engine? Any gotcha
doing so?

2> Also, is logstash the way to collect and send the data at each host to
ES?

Thank you,

Mike

Any reason for ES and not something like graphite?

ES should be able to do it though.

Well, we are thinking to store both logs and metrics in one place. In
theory it could work but I am wondering if anybody has actually tired that?

I gave it a test a while ago and it seemed to work ok (using collectd +
logstash), that was only with one server though and not at that resolution.
