Time series database

The Aruba Network Analytics Engine includes a built-in time series database. Time-series data about the resources monitored by agents are automatically collected and presented in graphs in the switch Web UI. The database makes the data seamlessly available to agents that use rules that evaluate network conditions over time.

Old time-series data is removed automatically either as the storage space on the switch is used or as the maximum number of days of data is reached. The amount of storage space consumed at any given time depends the number of switch resources being monitored at that time. Each monitored resource creates one time series. Each time series consumes approximately 240 KB of storage for each day.

When creating a script, software developers do not have to interact with this database directly. Use of the database is automatically handled by the Monitor and Rule functions.
