How Out-of-Order Data is Handled in Time-series Databases
Time-series databases are domain-specific databases. Ideally, we assume that data is written in real-time and in a sequential manner. However, in the real world, the situations are often more complex. Data may be out of order due to sensor failures, network latency, power outage,etc, posing challenges to time-series databases. In this article, we dive into the impact of out-of-order data in time-series databases and learn how to optimize its handling.
