TIMESTORE

Stores key-value pairs over a specified time period. To query stored values use TIMEQUERY. This function only stores data in memory. As soon as the app stops and restarts again the data collection starts over. To store data persistent use a Stream function connecting to a data base (e.g. TimescaleDB).

Syntax
