### On-disk layout
Ingested samples are grouped into blocks of two hours. Each two-hour block consists of a directory containing one or more chunk files that contain all time series samples for that window of time, as well as a metadata file and index file (which indexes metric names and labels to series in the chunk files). The block for currently incoming samples is kept in memory and not fully persisted yet. It is secured against crashes by a write-ahead-log (WAL) that can be replayed when the Prometheus server restarts after a crash. When series are deleted via the API, deletion records are stored in separate tombstone files (instead of deleting the data immediately from the chunk files).
