StackState Self-hosted v5.0.x
A telemetry stream is a real-time stream of either metric or log data coming from an external monitoring system.
Telemetry streams in StackState contain log or metrics data that has been retrieved from an external data source. Telemetry can be pushed to StackState by the StackState Agent or pulled directly from the data source by a StackState plugin.
In StackState, telemetry streams need to be linked to elements (components or relations). Once a telemetry stream has been linked to an element it can be used as an input for the element's checks. Read how to add a telemetry stream to an element.
