Turris Sentinel is a network security oriented project maintaining a network of honeypot-like probes running on Turris routers. In the last few years we developed an open source framework for data processing and explored several message queuing and storage technologies which powers our data processing pipelines. In this lecture I would like to talk about our experiences with Redis, InfluxDB and PostgreSQL databases - their pros and cons and their position in the ecosystem.
