Hi, I’m new here, and checking influxdb.
I think I get the whole picture, and start to wonder if influxdb is really suited to my use case.
I want to send events from a website to a database to make stats. Like:
- user clicked button A on page of type D using mobile device
- user displayed form B on page of type D using desktop device
- user submitted form C on page of type H using mobile device
Then I want to do analytics / stats based on those kinds of events (on weekly / monthly basis).
The thing I’m not really clear, is that influxdb requires me to send actual values (38° for temperature, or 46% for CPU usage). But the actions / events I want to log, don’t have value. They just are or are not. And they don’t happen on a regular basis.
Well they happen, hopefully as often as possible, but not at a specific interval like every 10s or every 5 min, etc.
What do you think? Should I use influx, if so how? Or should I move on something else? Any suggestions?
