At trivago we store a subset of our realtime metric data in InfluxDB and we are quite impressed by the load it can handle. Despite all the joy, we had to learn some lessons the hard way. It is pretty easy to overload the database or the web browser by executing queries that return too many datapoints. To prevent that, we wrote Protector - a circuit breaker for Time series databases that blocks malicious queries.
