I am running a PostgreSQL database that is logging state-of-health information for a number of systems. At the moment, it is running on a standard PostgreSQL server, but it seems like TimescaleDB has some usable features for this setup.
Most of the systems are logged directly, so the data are stored just after it has been collected. But some of the systems are not always on-line. They will log data locally when they are off-line, then when they are on-line, the collected data will be downloaded and inserted into the database. Will this pattern cause any problems for TimescaleDB? In some of the documentation, it seems to be important that data are written in time order.
In some of the documentation .... I would expect quote and deep link to the part of the documentation referenced here.
