Analysts please stop tagging your time series data with timestamp information like hour, day, month challenge

@trickster I guess they just don't quite get the data model? In fairness to them, I've since found out that pre-2.0 InfluxDB doesn't actually allow you to group by month or year so that's wild

@padraic_padraic wouldn't want to group by time segments in my time series database

@trickster But months are hard tricky. Sometimes they're like 30 days, sometimes 31. No-one has ever dealt with this.
