Anyone have opinions or awareness about opensource time-series DB's which have managed to achieve any sort of ongoing community & user base?

Open source time series databases are 100% garbage. This is delicately amusing to me, as all you need to know to make a good one is, like some tiny subsection of libc. Wes could write one which is at least OK, but he probably won't as he's busy being Wes.

If you're cheap and can deal with writing code in J: J's proprietary database (jd) is very good. The user community is small, but Iverson and company are very responsive, and they'll cut you an eval license for cheap. I've been using it on and off for a few years; it's harder to use than Kx, but arguably more powerful.

You are talking about "pandas Wes" ?

Without knowing your specific use case, I'm 95% certain that Postgres will work fine for you. Unless your data's huge or your queries are very bespoke, you probably don't need explicit time series support.

Seconding, @jslade, there isn't a good open source TSDB. Which is curious, because it really isn't that hard to design a good one from an architectural standpoint.
