 How to use the storage backends
 ===============================
 
-Do it!
+By default, *Collectors* uses a simple python :class:`list` for each series. You can use other storage backends to handle very large amounts of data or to get a simple *MS Excel* export. You can also add your own storage classes very easily.

+
+PyTables/HDF5
+-------------
+
+`PyTables <http://www.pytables.org/>`_ is not bundled with this package. Instructions follow:
+
+**Mac OS X (10.6.2 Snow Leopard)**
+
+**Ubuntu (9.10 Karmic Koala)**
+
+Ubuntu’s package for PyTables is somehow broken, so you need to build your own. If *gcc* is already installed, you just need to add the development files for python and HDF5 before you can build and install PyTables from `PyPI <http://pypi.python.org/pypi/tables>`_:
+
+.. sourcecode:: bash
+
+    $ sudo aptitude install python-dev libhdf5-serial-dev
+    $ sudo pip install tables
+
+**Windows**
+the `HDF5 libraries <http://www.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/>`_. You also need the *Python* development

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
