Timeseries storage and data compression

Monday 15 February 2016 Python, Gnocchi, OpenStack Comments

The first major version of the scalable timeserie database I work on, Gnocchi was a released a few months ago. In this first iteration, it took a rather naive approach to data storage. We had little ideas about if and how our distributed back-ends were going to be heavily used, so we stuck to the code of the first proof-of-concept written a couple of years ago.

Recently we got more feedbacks from our users, ran a few benchmarks. That gave us enough feedback to start investigating in improving our storage strategy.

Tuesday 13 October 2015 OpenStack, Gnocchi, Ceilometer Comments

We got pretty good feedback on Gnocchi so far, even if we only had little. Recently, in order to have a better feeling of where we were at, we wanted to know how fast (or slow) Gnocchi was.

Ceilometer, Gnocchi & Aodh: Liberty progress

Tuesday 04 August 2015 OpenStack, Aodh, Gnocchi, Ceilometer Comments

It's been a while since I talked about Ceilometer and its companions, so I thought I'd go ahead and write a bit about what's going on this side of OpenStack. I'm not going to cover new features and fancy stuff today, but rather a shallow overview of the new project processes we initiated.

Tuesday 21 April 2015 OpenStack, Ceilometer, Gnocchi Comments

It's with a great pleasure that we are going to release our first 1.0 version this month, roughly at the same time that the integrated OpenStack projects release their Kilo milestone. The first release candidate numbered 1.0.0rc1 has been released this morning!
