VectorUse This InfluxDB Integration for Free
Vector is a tool for creating data pipelines. It allows users to collect data from a wide range of sources, transform that data, and then output it to different sources.
Why use the Vector ecosystem integration?
Vector can handle logs and metrics, two key types of time series data for observability applications. Managing vast volumes of observability data can be challenging. The Vector ecosystem integration provides a fast and easy way to configure Vector to output data to InfluxDB.
How to use the Vector ecosystem integration
The Vector ecosystem integration requires users to create a new Vector instance. This instance accepts data from another upstream Vector instance. The new instance transforms the collected data and then outputs that data to InfluxDB.
To use this integration:
- Create a new Vector instance
- Configure the new Vector instance. This includes identifying the upstream Vector instance(s) providing data, and the InfluxDB instance and bucket(s) where you want to send your data.
- Start the new Vector instance using the config file.
