In post Custom sampling rate for brewblox graph widget?
you mentioned the
History Service and direct access to Influx data.
Can you explain:
What the different databases are for: autogen downsample_1m downsample_10m downsample_1h downsample_6h?
When / how / why does data move between them?
Are any of them ever emptied?
My ultimate goal is exporting data for safekeeping and external visualization.
What is the best way and/or database to export data for:
- An event that gathers data for a few hours (ie: mashing)?
- An event that gathers data for days or weeks (ie: fermentation)?
Are there any plans to create a front-end for data access or are the methods mentioned (cmdline, API, Grafana) intended for end-user consumption?
In other words, should I write quick & dirty, throw-away scripts for data access until something official is released OR should I spend more time on something I will be using for years to come?
