Time-series Storage

Sentry provides a service to store time-series data. Primarily this is used to display aggregate information for events and projects, as well as calculating (in real-time) the rates of events.

Choosing a Backend

To specify a backend, simply modify the SENTRY_TSDB and SENTRY_TSDB_OPTIONS values in your configuration:

SENTRY_TSDB = 'sentry.tsdb.dummy.DummyTSDB'

The Redis Backend

Configuration is fairly straight forward:

SENTRY_TSDB = 'sentry.tsdb.redis.RedisTSDB'

By default, this will use the default named Redis cluster. To use a different cluster, provide the cluster option, as such:

SENTRY_TSDB_OPTIONS = {
    'cluster': 'tsdb',
}
