According to the Documentation for InfluxDB v1.4,
InfluxDB should be run on locally attached SSDs. Any other storage configuration will have lower performance characteristics and may not be able to recover from even small interruptions in normal processing.
Using an SSD with an IoT node seems quite unlikely and also not very cost efficient. I have a Development board from PhyTec and I am planning to use a Memory (microSD) Card.
Will this affect performance of my application in anyway? The application has sampling rate for 1Hz and 10Hz from 3-5 sources, which I do not think is a very high requirement in terms of application.
(Each source is connected to a couple of sensors and the collected values are sent to the IoT Node for acquisition and then further sent to a cloud for processing.)
