Jimmy Guerrero — February 29, 2016

In this post we’ll recap the most interesting InfluxDB related content you may have missed in the last week or so.

Announcements, Blogs, Videos, Articles, Docs and How-Tos



Citilogics delivers next generation predictive analytics for municipal water distribution systems. Think continuous health monitoring for thousands of miles of underground water pipes. They can detect problems early and track down leaks and inefficiencies with a physics-based hydraulic simulation engine and modern web-based dashboards and alerts. According to Citilogics CTO Sam Hatchett, “InfluxDB’s speed and flexibility is so far beyond what our industry has had to this point. It’s really a game-changer for analytics in general and municipal water utilities in particular.”


OOO (also known as Parvis Plus) is a manufacturing company specializing in lightweight, high-precision metalworking. OOO’s holding company is ParAAvis – one of the most famous manufacturers of ultralight aviation products in the world. OOO’s products are intended for aviation and other industries that require a very high degree of accuracy in their mechanisms. All of the lathes, quality control and counting machines are automated and generate a huge flow of time-series data.

Before InfluxDB, OOO used a traditional relational database (MySQL) to store statistics and online monitoring data. Under times of heavy load the system would fail and be unable to continue to accept writes, causing gaps in the continuity of their data. OOO in-turn started suffering material losses because of this. They then decided to test a database management system that was purpose built for time-series data. InfluxDB proved to be very fast, lightweight and able to store data efficiently.



Sputnik is a Russian, “local” search engine. They use InfluxDB to build custom monitoring solutions and to store load testing data to feed their visualization dashboards.
