Elasticsearch Vs Influxdb


#1

Hi,

I am looking for more info on benefits of using elasticsearhc for metric data instead of a time series database like influxdb . Are there any performance analysis done on this ?

I've seen a few, but the underlying methods used ended up being questionable, so the results looked great but you might want to dig.

However Influx is designed as a TSDB, Elasticsearch is not, and you will find the former is faster for that use case. We've done heaps of work over the last few years to improve metric performance and efficiency, and are always adding more features in.

We find that the value lies in having metrics along with logs in the one place, instead of across multiple different platforms.
