Forwarders

A forwarder consists of a process that collects data from a source and forwards it to a given destination. Forwarders may perform additional functions, such as:

  • Aggregation of data from multiple inputs

  • Filtering and processing of data in flight

  • Routing to multiple destinations

  • Buffering and retransmission handling

This section documents how to configure different forwarders to stream data to Observe.
