Limit on how much InfluxDB can store?

Hey Everybody,

I am currently running Home Assistant on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ with InfluxDB and Grafana installed. I am currently doing a project where I need to be able to store data for a long amount of time and analyze it. I was wondering if someone could give me an idea of the amount of sensor data I can store in InfluxDB before I run into problems.



It doesn’t work like that. It all depends on how many records you save and how much space you have to write it too. So if your sensors reports about 1 event per hour and you have 1GB 9f space you could go on for decades. But if your sensor reports every second and you have only 32MB you would run out of space pretty fast. One thing is for sure, the limit is not influxdb itself.

Thank you for the help! This will really help with my project.
