Data Storage Capacity

Post by romemeek » Fri Aug 18, 2017 1:43 pm

Hello,

I have two questions. How long is the data from my push device stored on the cloud server?
Is there a limit to the amount of data that can be stored?

Thanks!

We store the latest 1000 real time reads. By default meters are read once per minute, so this is the latest 1000 minutes of data.

Here is more information about our Real-Time API: http://documents.ekmmetering.com/api-do ... altime-api

We then take these real-time reads and then summarize them down into 15 minute chunks that are available via our Summary API. We store these 15 minute chunks forever.

Here is more information about our Summary API: http://documents.ekmmetering.com/api-do ... ummary-api

Let me know if this does not answer your question.

That's good to know, Jameson. Are there any plans to expand the amount that's kept indefinitely or is there no need to do that?

We store the Summary Data indefinitely.

Are you talking about having more than 1000 reads in the EKM Push real-time data? At this point we do not have a plan to expand this. If someone wants 2000 minutes of real-time data (instead of the 1000 minutes that they get with the Push system by default), they can either change their meter read rates to once per 2 minutes (in this case 1000 reads would be 2000 minutes of data), or they can store all of the reads that come into the Push system using the EKM Dash software.
