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. It’s built atop libSysFlow, a library that lifts system call information into SysFlow, a higher order object relational format 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 builds on the CNCF Falco libs to passively collect system events and turn them into SysFlow. As a result, the collector supports the libs’ powerful filtering capabilities. Check the build and installation instructions for installing the collector.
