    InfluxDB is described as 'open source time series database, purpose-built by InfluxData for monitoring metrics and events, provides real-time visibility into stacks, sensors, and systems' and is a Web Log Analyzer in the Network & Admin category. There are nine alternatives to InfluxDB for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Self-Hosted solutions, SaaS, Mac and Windows. The best alternative is Prometheus, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like InfluxDB are Loki (Free, Open Source), VictoriaMetrics (Free, Open Source), TimescaleDB (Freemium, Open Source) and RRDTool (Free, Open Source).
