Title: Time-series monitoring tools give high-resolution view of IT
Author: Beth Pariseau
Abstract: In this TechTarget article, Beth Pariseau provides a quick overview of how and why time series monitoring tools are used. She notes that time series monitoring tools are based on time-series databases, which are optimized for time-stamped data collected at regular intervals (metrics) or irregular intervals (events). The author profiles one of InfluxData’s clients, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and the ways in which this established educational book and software publisher uses InfluxData to monitor various types of metrics.
