Collecting and Streaming Data

     Adding New Data Sources
     Creating New Streams


To stream data either from a web site source or to upload a file from your local drive, select Streams from the Navigation panel. In addition, you can add Lookup Tables to transform and filter data without having to create new streams.

To display:

  • Stream queries associated with a source, highlight the source in the Sources+ panel.
  • Lookup tables, scroll  to the end of the Sources+ panel and click the Lookup Table button.


The data sources are displayed in the Sources + panel.

  • To view a stream's data source, select the data source in the Sources + panel, click the More icon > View.
  • To rename or delete a source, click the More icon select [Rename/Delete].
  • To display a source's stream queries, select it, the streams are displayed in the Streams panel.


Adding New Data Sources

  1. In the Streams page, click Sources+ to display the Source Types page.


2. Select a data source. Click: 

 - Start and follow the on-screen instructions.
 - Instructions to open the relevant Knowledge Base instruction page.

Note If you do not see your data source, use Search.


The current status of stream queries are shown in the Streams + panel. To view, change the status or edit the query, highlight the stream query you want to change and click the More icon.

Queries status may be changed as follows:

[1] Renaming a Stream 

  1. Changes the stream reference to the metrics created from that stream.
  2. In Alerts/Composites/Anoboards/Dashboards, if the stream name is used:

a/ Without wildcards in an alert expression, it will be replaced in the expression automatically.
b/ With wildcards, the expression will not be changed automatically and you will need to change it manually.

Creating Stream Queries

Each source can hold several stream queries. To create new queries:

    1. Define a Stream Query per the requirements of the data source:
    2. Review the data in the Stream Table before processing it to Anodot.
      Note: To create more meaningful metrics, you can transform and filter the measures and dimensions from the data collectors before streaming the data.
      See Stream Tables Measure Columns and Dimension Columns


To upload and apply transformers and filters using Lookup Tables, see Lookup Tables.
