SysFlow Collector (sf-collector repo)¶
The SysFlow Collector monitors and collects system call and event information from hosts and exports them in the SysFlow format using Apache Avro object serialization. SysFlow lifts system call information into a higher order object relational form that models how containers, processes and files interact with their environment through process control flow, file, and network operations. Learn more about SysFlow in the SysFlow Specification Document.
The SysFlow Collector is currently built upon a Sysdig core and requires the Sysdig probe to passively collect system events and turn them into SysFlow. As a result, the collector supports Sysdig’s powerful filtering capabilities. Please see the build and installation instructions for installing the collector.
