I’m working as freelancer and am alone out here, i don’t control the flow or the format of the times series data i receive.
And they all are in XML for now. I checked with Telegraf and there doesn’t seem to be any XML input module. I was wondering if that was a current project ? Because i really can’t find any easy way to collect those XML and insert their data in InfluxDB.
I’m currently trying to use Node.JS to parse these XML and insert them into influxDB through the API, but this feels so wrong… Isn’t there a better way ? Also the writing API of influxDB doesn’t say if it’s best to insert 1000x1 row, 1x1000 row, or 10x100 row. I mean, the doc does specify that if you write multiple lines at a time, it will be faster than if you write it line by line, but at some point if i insert 50K lines with one HTTP post request, isn’t it going to be a problem ?
By the way, I’m totally new toinfluxData and time series, I have checked the documentation and the web, so far i havn’t find any solution.
