InfluxDB vs ToroDB: What are the differences?

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..

What is ToroDB? Open source, document-oriented, JSON database that runs on top of PostgreSQL. ToroDB is an open source, document-oriented, JSON database that runs on top of PostgreSQL, providing storage and I/O savings and ACID semantics. ToroDB is MongoDB-compatible, so you can use Mongo clients to connect to it.

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

Some of the features offered by InfluxDB are:

  • Time-Centric Functions
  • Scalable Metrics
  • Events

On the other hand, ToroDB provides the following key features:

  • Document-oriented (JSON)
  • Store data reliabily and durably with PostgreSQL
  • Use MongoDB clients to connect to it

InfluxDB and ToroDB are both open source tools. It seems that InfluxDB with 16.7K GitHub stars and 2.38K forks on GitHub has more adoption than ToroDB with 10 GitHub stars and 2 GitHub forks.

        TimescaleDB
        TimescaleDB: An open-source database built for analyzing time-series data with the power and convenience of SQL — on premise, at the edge, or in the cloud.
        Redis
        Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
        MongoDB
        MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
        Prometheus
        Prometheus is a systems and service monitoring system. It collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals, evaluates rule expressions, displays the results, and can trigger alerts if some condition is observed to be true.
        Elasticsearch
        Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of storing data and searching it in near real time. Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats and Logstash are the Elastic Stack (sometimes called the ELK Stack).

        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
