ConnectCore Cloud Services allow you to store time-series data in Remote Manager that can be retrieved later by an external application using Remote Manager web service APIs. This feature is known within Remote Manager as data streams.

You can store virtually any type of data, and you can create real-time charts to monitor your data streams. Data streams are fully searchable and the data within a stream can be rolled up into time interval summaries. Data is stored and replicated in multiple secure, commercial-grade storage systems to ensure complete data protection.

Time series data in Remote Manager involves two concepts:

  • Data points are the individual values which are stored in data streams with a unique time stamp.

  • Data streams are containers of data points. Data streams hold metadata about the data points within them. Data streams and the data points they hold are addressed using hierarchical paths (much like folders).

Depending on your use case, there are different ways to upload data to Remote Manager:

Data backlog

The ConnectCore Cloud Services daemon stores samples locally when it is not possible to upload them to Remote Manager. Samples to store include System Monitor and custom samples.

This service is enabled and configured in the ConnectCore Cloud Services (CCCS) configuration file, /etc/cccs.conf. For more information about the configuration file, see Configure ConnectCore Cloud Services and Include ConnectCore Cloud Services applications in Digi Embedded Yocto.
