I have been experimenting with storing images in InfluxDB, so far it works fine. I encode the images to a base64 string, send to a MO, then pull the string out the other end and recreate the image.
I have a scenario where I want a short RP (like 5 minutes) where I can remotely trigger screen capture of some remote devices, it would capture fairly infrequently in relation to the 1 second metric data being captured. The metric data will indicate a problem with software or UI programs running on the remote device (think locked down interactive kiosks), which will trigger the screen to be captured every 10 seconds (rolling 5 minute retention period) and sent back for analysis (remote troubleshooting) before the client(s) even notice something was wrong.
My question is, what affect will this type of MO type & size have on the rest of the DB? Is there potential for it to negatively impact the usual metric (a bunch of floats, say 10 fields & 3 tags per MO) storage & retrieval?
