Is ElasticSearch a suitable tool to do time series comparison?


The running of an industrial process I'm in charge of produces time series data (approximately several thousand parameters, each 1/8th of a second, during a month).

My goal is to look at two month-long executions and compare the data (something like, for each parameter or group of parameters, max diff, mean diff, and other standard statistical metrics).

I've succeeded in prototyping the ingestion of data into ES through LogStash, and created a basic visualisation in Kibana. But as I'm moving forward, I'm wondering: sure ELK can store my data and offer some nice visualisations, but is it really a tool to produce such time series analysis/comparison/statistics? Because, if yes, I cannot find how to tackle the issue... If not, would you happen to know where I should look?
