CREATING A STREAM
Each source can hold several streams. Each stream is created in two steps:
- Defining the Stream Query
- Data to collect: measures, dimensions and timestamp
- Collection scheduling
Based on your Stream Query, Anodot creates a Stream Table which displays:
- A time stamp column
- 'What' columns
- Properties columns
- An estimate of the number of metrics the query will create
- Your account balance of used and available metrics.
To create more meaningful metrics, you can transform the dimensions by replacing text or extracting Regex prefixes and suffixes before streaming the data.
