Soliciting feedback: RavenDB time series queries
by Oren Eini, CEO RavenDB
RavenDB 5.0 will come out with support for time series. I talked about this briefly in the past, and now we are the point where we are almost ready for the feature to stand on its own. Before we get to that point, I have a few questions before the design is set. Here is what a typical query is going to look like:
We intend to make the queries as obvious as possible, so I’m not going to explain it. If you can’t figure out what the query above is meant to do, I would like to know, though.
What sort of queries would you look to do with the data? For example, here is something that we expect users to want to do, compare and contrast different time periods, which you’ll be able to do with the following manner:
The output of this query will give you the daily summaries for the last two months, as well as a time based diff between the two (meaning that it will match on the same dates, ignoring missing values, etc).
What other methods for the “timeseries.*” would you need?
The other factor that we want to get feedback on is what sort of visualization do you want to see on top of this data in the RavenDB Studio?
