Newts is a time-series data schema for Apache Cassandra. It enables horizontal scaling capabilities for your time series storage and is an alternative to JRobin and RRDtool.

This section provides reference documentation for Newts, including additional configuration options, and information about the metrics Meridian collects from Cassandra and for monitoring Newts.

For information on how to configure Meridian to use Newts, see Newts in the Deployment section.
