Why does using the coarsest possible timestamp precision when writing data to InfluxDB maximize performance?

To maximize performance we recommend using the coarsest possible timestamp precision when writing data to InfluxDB.

InfluxDB stores all timestamps as nanosecond values, regardless of the write precision supplied.

So my question is why does using the coarsest possible timestamp precision when writing data to InfluxDB maximize performance? :pleading_face:

Hey there,

I have the same question because at the docs you mention using the coarsest possible timestamp.
But when i click the link for more information it brings me just 1 page back
