InfluxDB TSM Engine

Understanding the way in which InfluxDB’s Time Structure Mergetree (TSM) engine stores data on disk can help you design better solutions using your time series data. Here, Jacob Marble goes over what the TSM engine is and he walks through an example that shows what data points look like when stored on disk in this format.

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
