OpenTSDB is an open source, scalable, <buzzword>big data</buzzword> solution for storing time series data.

So here comes a puzzle for you … You do have Apache Camel (2.17), which internally uses
com.googlecode.concurrentlinkedhashmap, which uses
sun.misc.Unsafe. Now you can argue a lot about this is necessary or not. I just is that way. So starting up Apache Camel in an OSGi container which does strict processing of classes, using Apache Camel will run into a “java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError” issue due to “sun/misc/Unsafe”.
