Terminology

Description of LOGIQ platform terminology that is used elsewhere in the documentation.

This section covers commonly used terminology in our documentation, ui, source code when referring to the LOGIQ configuration file

Credential

A credential gives access details to the S3 storage resource so LOGIQ can drain the logs to your S3 compatible persistent store. A credential is referenced in the destination section.

Destination

A destination is a store for the data. Incoming data streams are processed and eventually land into one or more of the destinations specified in the configuration file.

Filter

A Filter performs a boolean expression evaluation based on the incoming data fields. It returns a "true" or "false" evaluation. A filter is attached to a rule. The filter condition must evaluate to "true" for the data to be stored at the destination specified in the rule.

Grouping

A Grouping is a key value pair that tags data ingested by the LOGIQ server. It is defined on a destination.

Partition

A partition specifies a partitioning scheme for the incoming data for a given destination. A user can specify a partition scheme using any of the attributes in the incoming data.

Rule

A Rule determine how incoming data is mapped to a bucket. LOGIQ server can manage multiple buckets and manage data flowing into them simultaneously via multiple rules.

Source

A source is one or more clients sending data to the LOGIQ server.
