Optimizing the Storage of Large Volumes of Metrics for a Long Time in VictoriaMetrics
Introduction Nowadays, the main tools for monitoring the operation of any application are metrics and logs. An important role is played by the time of their storage. Often, in order to understand certain processes and predict their development in the future, we need to analyze metrics over a fairly long period of time. In the case, when the project is just starting, their volume is relatively small, but over time it becomes larger and larger and there is a need for optimization. In this article, I will touch upon the mechanisms for processing, storing and optimizing metrics during their long-term storage.
