Data Storage

Data Storage

Data storage is related to the variables stored in the data buckets that are fed by the devices. Each register is composed of a variable and all metadata associated with it. The data storage limit will define the maximum storage capacity for the selected Profile at all times.

You can see the number of registers stored in each data bucket by accessing the tab 'Variables'.

As the field 'location' that contains lat/lng is part of a variable, you can consider location in the same register. The rule applies to metadata as well.

Therefore, in the example below, all the fields and metadata stored with the variable 'temperature' are counted as only 1 register.

    "variable": "temperature",
    "value": 71,
    "unit": "F",
    "time": "2019-06-30 01:58:11",
    "serie": "1561859891862",
    "location": {
      "lat": 35.770723,
      "lng": -78.677328
    "metadata": {
      "color": "green"

If the Data Storage limit is exceeded, no data will be saved until the limit is increased or the number of registers is reduced. API response will indicate that the limit was exceeded for that Profile.

Another simple example: Your device sends speed, temperature, and humidity with location every 1hour. As a result, 3 new registers will be added every hour.

TagoIO will send warning Emails to you each time the storage exceeds 80%, 90%, and 100% of the limit.
