I need some help with setting up my system correctly. The main issue I have right now is how I cope with online and offline data.
I have process that is being monitored online. Everything I want is dumped in influxdb, visualisation is currently grafana.
The process sensors give continous output, however the process is run in batches.
At the start of the batch a couple of parameters are written down (unable to collect those with influx).
However I would need these for calculations during the process/batch.
What is the best approach for doing this?
Things I think about:
- adding written down measurement as a measurement to the influx database, using some kind of online form (can this be done in chronograf/grafana?). And then use a combination of two Tickscripts: A stream for continous calculation, and a batch script to recalculate (if the written down values are only inserted during a running batch).
- What can be done with the annotations? Can I extract data at the timepoint of the annotation?
