Using a Relational Database to Store and Retrieve Your Monitoring Data

The normal thing to do with your monitoring data is to keep it in a file, but you may want to keep it in a relational database instead. It takes a bit more work to set up, and relational data is not as easily accessible as data in files, but the advantages are huge:

  • First, you have all of your data in one place, so you don’t have to go hunting for files when you need to find out what happened to the performance of a particular page when a new feature was introduced last month. Of course, having all the data in one place also makes you more vulnerable to losing it all at once.

  • You have ease of querying. Rather than manually poking or grepping through a huge file, you can simply make SQL queries for the time range in which you’re interested.
