I’ve started using InfluxDB for storing my sensor data as time series. The main reason for this is that it allows me to use Grafana for analyzing the data. This blog post is an introduction to my setup with these tools on a Raspberry Pi.
As described in some earlier posts, I have a setup at home with IoT devices that publish measurement messages to a Raspberry Pi via MQTT. The RPi stores the data in a database and also forwards the messages to a cloud service (Adafruit IO).
In this post I have made a self-hosted data visualization web app that can be accessed from any browser-enabled device.
