Chronix vs InfluxDB: What are the differences?

What is Chronix? A fast and efficient time series storage based on Apache Lucene and Apache Solr. Chronix is built to store time series highly compressed and for fast access times. In comparison to related time series databases, Chronix does not only take 5 to 171 times less space, but it also shaves off 83% of the access time, and up to 78% off the runtime on a mix of real world queries.

What is InfluxDB? An open-source distributed time series database with no external dependencies. InfluxDB is a scalable datastore for metrics, events, and real-time analytics. It has a built-in HTTP API so you don't have to write any server side code to get up and running InfluxDB is designed to be scalable, simple to install and manage, and fast to get data in and out..

Chronix and InfluxDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.

Chronix and InfluxDB are both open source tools. It seems that InfluxDB with 16.6K GitHub stars and 2.37K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Chronix with 247 GitHub stars and 23 GitHub forks.

          Influx doesn't currently natively support horizontal distribution. Hard to recommend it until they implement that.

          We use InfluxDB as a store for our data that gets fed into Grafana. It's ideal for this as it's a lightweight storage engine that can be modified on the fly by scripts without having to log into the server itself and manage tables. The HTTP API also makes it ideal for integrating with frontend services.

          To track time-series of course, utilizing few retention rules and continuous queries to keep time-series data fast and maintanable

          InfluxDB ingests information from various sources (mostly Telegraf instances) into one place for monitoring purposes.
