Elasticsearch vs InfluxDB

Benchmarking Elasticsearch vs InfluxDB for Time-Series Data & Metrics

Over the last few weeks a few members of the InfluxData engineering and QA teams set out to compare the performance and features of Elasticsearch vs InfluxDB for common time series workloads, specifically looking at the rates of data ingestion, on-disk data compression, and query performance. InfluxDB outperformed Elasticsearch in all three tests with 8x greater write throughput, while using 4x less disk space when compared against Elastic’s time series optimized configuration, and delivering 3.5x to 7.5x faster response times for tested queries. This webinar playback will walk you through the benchmarks.
