An overview of the InfluxDB storage engine architecture.
The InfluxDB file system layout depends on the operating system, package manager, or containerization platform used to install InfluxDB.
Learn the relationships between buckets, shards, and shard groups. InfluxDB organizes time series data into shards when storing data to disk. Shards are grouped into shard groups.
InfluxDB system buckets contain time series data used by and generated from the InfluxDB monitoring and alerting system and the task engine.
