How are series recorded in InfluxDB

Hi,

If i make different measurements but they all share the same tagssets. Do i save diskspace if i put all the fieldsets in 1 measurement?
Because i write the tagset only once or is influxdb saving all the different series separately, so in the end influxDB record the data all the same?

Thanks at advance!
Kind regards,
Ward

Hello @Roekens,
Thanks for your question! InfluxDB Indexes tags, measurements, and buckets. Fields are not indexed. You save diskspace if you decrease your series cardinality. Please take a look at these resources:
