Working with MQTT and InfluxDB
MQTT is a protocol for machine-to-machine communication based on a publish/subscribe model, allowing IoT devices to publish messages to a broker and into a specific topic. Effectively, MQTT exists to pass along data generated by IoT devices.
Users leveraging that data still need a way to collect, store, and analyze it. This paper is an introduction to MQTT and includes the benefits and challenges of working with it, as well as some general use cases.
In this e-book, you will learn:
- The history of the MQTT protocol and how developers use it
- Some of the challenges of working with MQTT
- Why the InfluxDB time series database is ideal for MQTT data
