How QIoT Suite Lite store sensor data

How QIoT Suite Lite store sensor data

In previous design, user need to add QDatabase to store data, however most of the user feedback wants to automatically store all the data accordingly. So that after QIoT v1.1 once using the QBroker node, the data will auto save to database and don’t need to use QDatabase anymore. All the data from QBroker (in), will store in the QDatabase, and user can use QHistoricData to retrieves the maximum, minimum, and average value stored in the QDdatabase
