Does ChirpStack store entries by itself?

Hi there. This might look like a very basic question but Im a little unclear on this.
Im installing ChirpStack OS on a R-PI 4. I want to try to setup an existing gateway to point to this CS setup and I was wondering if CHIRPSTACK NS acts as a cloud system ie does it store the received data for good?
Im trying to compare it to other platforms I’ve used before like Thingspeak (I know it’s different, I use it with Sigfox) and this one does store the received data with no time limit so I can access all information from the last month, year, etc…

Does CS do it as well or should I rely this functionality to an external program? In which case which one?

Thanks!

You will want to look at Integrations, of which there are many to choose from:

If you want to keep everything self-contained, you could use the PostgreSQL integration to store to the same database host as you use for existing ChirpStack functionality.

Understood. Yes, the postgresql integrations seems valid for me now, as this is only a test setup to validate using ChirpStack in a small environment. I guess the limitation will be the size of the SD card where the CS OS system is mounted on the R-PI

Thanks!

Hi Edu_Gimeno,

I´m using chirpstack NS with Influx integration and with Grafana frontend. It works like a charm!
