Timeseries Integration Layer

This section describes how to configure Horizon to use the Time Series Integration Layer.

Traditionally Horizon supports storing time series data in RRD files on disk or via Newts in Cassandra. These implementations require a deep knowledge of OpenNMS. It is hard to add another time series database.

These are experimental and not ready for use in a production environment.

Examples of time series plugins:
