Title: The Effect of Cardinality on Data Ingest (Part 1)
Author: Ed Bernier
Abstract: This DZone article by InfluxData Sales Engineer Ed Bernier addresses what happens when the cardinality of data is large compared to the amount of data to be ingested. The author investigates that problem by testing the performance of a database. Bernier provides a summary of scale-down testing, as well as measuring the impact of cardinality on write throughput. The article is the first of a series he will be publishing on performance testing of InfluxDB Enterprise.
