DescriptionFull-featured RDBMS with a small footprint, either embedded into a Java application or used as a database server.Industry standard data logging and graphing tool for time series data. RRD is an acronym for round-robin database. infoThe data is stored in a circular buffer, thus the system storage footprint remains constant over time.An embeddable, high performance key-value store optimized for write-intensive workloads, which can be used as a drop-in replacement for RocksDB
