Walmart Labs is the “technology arm” of Walmart that includes a team of engineers, designers and product leaders. The team at Walmart Labs develop innovations to make in-store and online shopping a more seamless experience for millions of daily shoppers.

Walmart Labs uses InfluxDB in conjunction with Kubernetes – taking advantage of the many integrations made available between the two. Their team is using InfluxDB to store metric data being captured in Kubernetes and visualize it using Grafana. They have also enlisted Chronograf for query building and viewing.

Saiyam Pathak, of Walmart Labs, wrote Continuous Queries (CQ) to determine long-term retention of data captured. He is active on Slack and is currently working on a blog to share the details of the CQs he has written.
