kandi X-RAY | timescaledb Summary
TimescaleDB is an open-source database designed to make SQL scalable for time-series data. It is engineered up from PostgreSQL and packaged as a PostgreSQL extension, providing automatic partitioning across time and space (partitioning key), as well as full SQL support. If you prefer not to install or administer your instance of TimescaleDB, hosted versions of TimescaleDB are available in the cloud of your choice (pay-as-you-go, with a free trial to start). To determine which option is best for you, see Timescale Products for more information about our Apache-2 version, TimescaleDB Community (self-hosted), and Timescale Cloud (hosted), including: feature comparisons, FAQ, documentation, and support.

I also have a continuous aggregate for that hypertable:...

I'm not sure I understood what do you mean by "all affected tables", but to get all hypertables in a single query, you can cast the hypertable name with
::regclass. Example from some playground database with a few random hypertables:

For a project I need two types of tables.
- hypertable (which is a special type of table in PostgreSQL (in PostgreSQL TimescaleDB)) for some timeseries records
- my ordinary tables which are not timeseries
Can I create a PostgreSQL TimescaleDB and store my ordinary tables on it? Are all the tables a hypertable (time series) on a PostgreSQL TimescaleDB? If no, does it have some overhead if I store my ordinary tables in PostgreSQL TimescaleDB?
If I can, does it have any benefit if I store my ordinary table on a separate ordinary PostgreSQL database?...

Can I create a PostgreSQL TimescaleDB and store my ordinary tables on it?
Absolutely... TimescaleDB is delivered as an extension to PostgreSQL and one of the biggest benefits is that you can use regular PostgreSQL tables alongside the specialist time-series tables. That includes using regular tables in SQL queries with hypertables. Standard SQL works, plus there are some additional functions that Timescale created using PostgreSQL's extensibility features.
Are all the tables a hypertable (time series) on a PostgreSQL TimescaleDB?
No, you have to explicitly create a table as a hypertable for it to implement TimescaleDB features. It would be worth checking out the how-to guides in the Timescale docs for full (and up to date) details.
If no, does it have some overhead if I store my ordinary tables in PostgreSQL TimescaleDB?
I don't think there's a storage overhead. You might see some performance gains e.g. for data ingest and query performance. This article may help clarify that https://docs.timescale.com/timescaledb/latest/overview/how-does-it-compare/timescaledb-vs-postgres/
Overall you can think of TimescaleDB as providing additional functionality to 'vanilla' PostgreSQL and so unless there's a reason around application design to separate non-time-series data to a separate database then you aren't obliged to do that.
One other point, shared by a very experienced member of our Slack community [thank you Chris]:
To have time-series data and “normal” data (normalized) in one or separate databases for us came down to something like “can we asynchronously replicate the time-series information”? In our case we use two different pg systems, one replicating asynchronously (for TimescaleDB) and one with synchronous replication (for all other data).
Transparency: I work for Timescale
I have a python code where I am passing arguments to a function using CLICK package. I have dockerized this code and using the image inside a yaml file to deploy this inside minikube on my Windows machine. It worked fine without the arguments but with argument passing, it is giving field immutable error....
ANSWERAnswered 2021-Dec-03 at 00:01
Author of the question made some changes in his Job. After the update he got a "field is immutable" error.
This is caused by the fact that
.spec.template field in Job is immutable and can not be updated.
Delete the old Job and create a new one with necessary changes.
I'm new to TimescaleDB and started with exploring the documentation. It's pretty clear and looks like I've missed something important.
I've created a table:...
ANSWERAnswered 2021-Nov-23 at 22:24
Typically the "time" column used to create the hypertable is not used as a segment by column while setting up compression. segment_by column is a column that has some commonality across the data set. e.g. If we have a table with device readings (device_id, event_timestamp, event_id, reading) the segment by column could be device_id (say you have a few 1000 devices and the device_readings table has data in the order of millions/billions). Note that the data in the segment by column is never stored in compressed form. Only the non segment by columns get compressed.
Consider a table with 2 columns:...

You can do this by calculating a normal continuous aggregate and then doing a window function over it. So, calculate a
sum() for each hour and then do
sum() as a window function would work.
When you get into more complex aggregates like average or standard deviation or percentile approximation or the like, I'd recommend switching over to some of the two-step aggregates we introduced in the TimescaleDB Toolkit. Specifically, I'd look into the statistical aggregates we recently introduced. They can also do this cumulative sum type thing. (They will only work with DOUBLE PRECISION or things that can be cast to that-ie
FLOAT, I'd highly recommend you don't use
NUMERIC and instead switch to doubles or floats, doesn't seem like you really need infinite precision calculations here).
You can take a look with some queries I wrote up in this presentation but it might look something like:
I have a simple database schema (Timescaledb) with a few tables. Each user has one main sensor with multiple metrics, each metric has its own table with user_id and timestamp.

Yes! it's possible!
You can try it by using regular SQL. Here is some example:
The chunk partitioning for hypertables is a key feature of TimescaleDB. You can also create relational tables instead of hypertables, but without the chunk partitioning.
So if you have a database with around 5 relational tables and 1 hypertable, does it lose the performance and scalability advantage of chunk partitioning?...
ANSWERAnswered 2021-Oct-13 at 14:30
One of the key advantages of TimescaleDB in comparison to other timeseries products is that timeseries data and relational data can be stored in the same database and then queried and joined together. So, "by design", it is expected that the database with several normal tables and hypertable will perform well. Usual PostgreSQL consideration about tables and other database objects, e.g., how shared memory is going to be affected, applies here.
