With the wide application of time series databases (TSDBs) in big data fields like cluster monitoring and industrial IoT, there have been developed a number of TSDBs for time series data management. Different TSDBs have test reports comparing themselves with other databases to show their advantages, but the comparisons are typically based on their own tools without using a common well-recognized test framework. To the best of our knowledge, there is no mature TSDB benchmark either. With the
more » ... of establishing a standard of evaluating TSDB systems, we present the IoTDB-Benchmark framework, specifically designed for TSDB and IoT application scenarios. We pay close attention to some special data ingestion scenarios and summarize 10 basic queries types. We use this benchmark to compare four TSDB systems: InfluxDB, OpenTSDB, KairosDB and TimescaleDB. Our benchmark framework/tool not only measures performance metrics but also takes system resource consumption into consideration.
