Enabling the Data Exporter

To support the Data Exporter, Turbonomic provides an extractor component that can stream data to a standard format. You can load that data into search and analytics services such as Elasticsearch.

To enable the Data Exporter, you must:

  • Enable the extractor component.
    The extractor is a component that runs as part your Turbonomic installation. The extractor is not enabled by default.

  • Deploy a connector that delivers the extractor’s stream to your data service.
    The extractor publishes Turbonomic data as Kafka topics. The connector enables your data service to consume the data topic. This document includes a deployment file for a sample Elasticsearch connector.
