Elixir Tempo is a database for storing fast changing time-series data. Examples of such data where values change over time include:
Data is stored in a Round Robin Database (RRD).
Figure 5.1, “Round Robin Database” shows an example of the RRD.
A field in an RRD is defined by the size of a step (here 1 minute) and the number of steps in a row (here 10).
This RRD only holds 10 minutes of data; the 11th minute will wrap-around and overwrite the first slot.
You can consolidate data as shown in example: Figure 5.2, “Consolidate Data”:
