Hi All,

Is there a limit on number of measurements that influxdb can easily handle. Can Influxdb handle a 10 Million measurement values per day for 1 Million metrics. I know the requirement sounds strange but need to check suitability of Influx for my case.

Hi Irfan. That's a little on the high side. Back of the envelope / order of magnitude calculation... you should be able to handle at least 1 Million measurement values per day for 1 Million metrics (feel free anyone to contest my math). Pushing to 10 million values per day might be tricky. That's ~120 per second; do you really need that level of resolution?
