Title: Red Flags of High Cardinality in Databases
Author: Katy Farmer

Abstract: In this DZone article, InfluxData DevRel Katy Farmer discusses the concept of cardinality in databases. She starts by acknowledging the concept’s difficulty and providing an overview of what it means. Then she proceeds to explain how to recognize and how to address it if it exists in your use case. After covering factors that influence the existence of cardinality, such as how data is organized in a database, she concludes: “Cardinality is a way to measure the complexity of our data so that we can better understand the relationships between different aspects of data. This helps us build smarter relationships and design more stable systems.”
