Performance with InfluxDB


We are evaluating the storing waveforms that contain about 1M samples into the community edition of InfluxDB. It’s taking about 27+ seconds to store this data. Is this sort of performance expected or should we assume that it could be improved significantly? The data is going into a single, initially empty, series in 20K batches and we’re using the Java API.



Is there any information available that indicates the type of throughput one can expect from a single InfluxDB instance? I realize there are many factors that could impact the metrics, but lets assume the system on which InfluxDB is running has ample resources.
