ilert's integration catalog now includes a new addition for InfluxDB—an open-source time series database.

What is InfluxDB?

InfluxDB is an open-source time series database designed to handle high write and query loads in a time-efficient manner. It's specifically built to store and analyze time-stamped data, such as metrics and events, making it a critical tool for monitoring applications, Internet of Things applications, real-time analytics, and more. The database is distinguished by its high-performance data storage, easy scalability, and a straightforward query language called InfluxQL, which simplifies the process of working with time series data. InfluxDB supports a wide array of data types and offers features like data retention policies, continuous queries, and real-time alerts, making it a versatile choice for managing large volumes of time-sensitive data across various industries.

What can you expect from the ilert integration for InfluxDB?

This integration allows you to send alerts to the ilert incident management platform and notify team members through various channels, including push notifications, SMS, voice calls, and more. Alerts will be escalated until acknowledged. All notifications are actionable, enabling you to modify the alert status directly within the channel where you received it.

Linking InfluxDB with ilert platform equips your team with a comprehensive toolset for managing the entire incident lifecycle—from acknowledging alerts to conducting post-incident analysis with the support of AI-driven postmortems. Additionally, you'll have the capability to arrange on-call duties, inform your clients and stakeholders about critical issues through status pages, and leverage various ChatOps features for Slack and Microsoft Teams to resolve incidents.
