Title: The Technical Architecture Behind TICK, a Time Series Analysis Platform Using InfluxDB
Author: Kiran Oliver
Abstract: This article by The New Stack, featuring an interview with InfluxData Co-founder and CTO Paul Dix, covers the technical architecture behind InfluxData’s TICK Stack. Built from the ground up to handle metrics and events, the TICK Stack consists of Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf, and Kapacitor. Paul Dix introduces InfluxData and discusses querying the TICK Stack in Telegraf with time series metrics, as well as InfluxDB and TICK Stack use cases. He explains the stack’s technical architecture, why decoupling is key to scaling, and how time series data is good for event-based architectures.
