Event Streams Architecture Diagram

User documentation

This diagram shows a high-level view of the Event Streams Architecture. Event Streams consists of three parts:

- Event Notifiers:
Gather and parse selected records from a source. Example sources are files or named pipes usually configured
by syslog.conf.
Format messages (with source:, subject: and msg: fields) and send to the Event Dispatcher.

- Event Dispatcher:
Gather notifier records in a buffer.
Accept client subscriptions for records from a given source and selected subjects.
Examine arriving records and send to subscribed consumers.

- Event Consumers:
Subscribe to the Event Dispatcher for selected source and subjects. Process received records for whatever
use is desired. Example uses are to populate databases or to select systems for detecting TIssue issues.
