I want to aggregate metrics from a set of remote servers. My intended approach is to write metrics on each remote server into a text file, each point with a timestamp. Periodically I will download the text file to a central server for loading into InfluxDB.
As I load data from remote servers, in many cases the data will be out of order, with older points being loaded before newer.
Will out-of-order data loading cause any problems with InfluxDB??
