SquirrelDB by Bleemeo

Bleemeo has published several components of the Bleemeo Cloud based Monitoring product as Open Source projects. The two main projects are Glouton, our agent based on Prometheus and Telegraf and SquirrelDB our Time Series Database based on Cassandra.

A time series database (TSDB) is a software system optimized for storing and disseminating time series through associated time and value pairs. Time series data are simply measurements or events that are tracked, monitored, downsampled, and aggregated over time.
