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.
