Influx DB is time series database written in Go.
It supports SQL like queries and it has different entry points, REST API (tcp protocol) and UDP.
We wrote a sdk to manage integration between Influx and PHP.
It supports Guzzle Adapter but if you use Zend\Client you can write your implementation.
In this case we are using a Guzzle Client, we communicate with Influx in TPC, but we can speak with it in UDP
Both of them have the same usage
The first different between udp and tcp is known, TPC after request expects a response, UDP does not expect anything and in this case does not exist any delivery guarantee. If you can accept this stuff this is the benchmark:
