For CitiLogics, InfluxDB's speed and flexibility was so far beyond what the utilities industry have had at this point. They found it was a real game-changer for analytics in general and municipal water utilities in particular. What did Citilogics find compelling about InfluxDB? Data throughput, easy integration with dashboards and ease of development. The speed of queries was key as well, as existing process control historians were simply not designed to serve data efficiently. They needed a better solution in order to ingest data quickly enough to serve analytics in real time.

CitiLogics delivers advanced predictive analytics to municipal water utilities. 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.

InfluxDB had many features Newmax needed that made it an ideal choice. First, it is fast and scalable. Their servers receives millions of GPS data points from sensors every second, and InfluxDB handled the load perfectly. Second, the SQL like query language made it easy for them to retrieve data. For visualization they use InfluxDB with Grafana.

BillFront already had a running Riemann (riemann.io) instance that received monitoring data from all of their apps and services, and it proved to be incredibly useful, providing a real-time overview of their infrastructure. However, they also wanted to have an overview of how well all the elements are performing in comparison to historical data, to spot any possible deteriorations as quickly as possible. To do so, they needed to store the data Riemann was receiving. Enter InfluxDB - not only was it made especially for that exact purpose, but it also integrated with Riemann out-of-the-box. A couple lines of config code later and their data was already safely stored in a Dockerised InfluxDB instance, ready to be queried and graphed.

LearnZillion was looking into collecting, storing, and visualizing host and application level metrics from their applications. They liked what the TICK-stack had to offer in meeting those needs: composable systems that are self-contained and easily extendible. Since they use Salt Stack to manage configurations on their instances, they first searched for existing formulas to deploy Telegraf to their instances. Unfortunately, there was no such formula available, so they decided to write one and publish it themselves. The telegraf-formula will install and setup Telegraf on Debian or Red Hat-based systems. The formula gives users an easy way to describe various inputs, outputs, and global_tags via yaml in Salt's pillar.

LearnZillion helps teachers and parents meet the academic needs of their students. They do that by providing an open, cloud-based curriculum. LearnZillion helps teachers, schools, and districts improve instruction, track student performance, and better respond to the specific needs of their students.

Football Addicts

Football Addicts rewrote their push notification system from scratch in Elixir and use InfluxDB for the monitoring and gathering of metrics of this notifications system. Football Addicts chose InfluxDB because it offered everything they needed to build their monitoring stack.

Football Addicts main product is ForzaFootball, an iOS and Android app that provides live scores, lineups, push notifications, opinion polls and video highlights for more than 800 football leagues and cups around the world.


Siminars was looking for a less complex time-series database. They had a couple of options like Cassandra and OpenTSDB, but InfluxDB stood out for its simplicity. They found the query language quite handy and having not dealt with any column database before, InfluxQL was an easy query language to learn. They use AWS Cloudfront to serve all their static content. However, there was no easy way of querying or visualizing the metrics around the static delivery. Static content delivery provided Siminars with real insights, like how long does it take for a video to be downloaded on a client's web page which we could directly translate into what sort of encoding they needed in that region, for that customer, or for a particular tenant. And of course these heuristics keep changing over time. So, they decided to dump all the cloudfront logs into an InfluxDB server. It started off as an experiment but it went on to gulp hundreds of gigabytes of logs and has been running rather smoothly for over a year now.

Siminars is a content platform which serves all kinds of media like audio, photos, videos etc.

Penn State needed a way to take metrics from Nagios, which they use to monitor nearly everything, and put it into a more useful system. Previously, they were using pnp4nagios, but it made it very difficult to find the data they were looking for, compare data from both of their nagios systems (active/passive pair), and combine the metrics with metrics from other systems. They looked at graphios originally, but found it didn't make efficient use of tags, and the data was laid out rather awkwardly. In the end, they wrote a custom Python script with better logging, simpler configuration, code that was easier to read, and used the influxdb-python module to talk to InfluxDB, obviating the need to handle any of that themselves. There is also a scripted dashboard for displaying all the metrics available for a given host. Eventually, the metrics collected with nagios+fluxios will be displayed alongside metrics from other systems, including Telegraf, which will likely replace their aging Ganglia installation.
