Forwarding Data

In Operations Connector, performance data collected from various sources is stored locally in a store provided by the Operations Agent. With Data Forwarding policies, you can forward the collected data directly to consumer applications through HTTP(S) POST requests to REST web service endpoints (targets).

By using data forwarding polices, you can:

  • configure several targets that receive data
  • define rules on what data is sent to which target
  • configure rules to discard specific data for some targets
  • send data that was collected by an Operations Connector policy before or after the policy rules are processed
  • run multiple policies at the same time.

You do not need to change existing Operations Connector policies to enable data forwarding.
