Definition

Ironstream Hub

Hub

Software for creating an environment which transfers data from the Ironstream agents running on IBM Z or IBM i systems to specific targets. It runs on either Windows or Linux.

Ironstream Hub Portal

Hub Portal The web browser-based user interface where Ironstream data pipelines are configured.

Ironstream® Agent for IBM i

IBM i Agent

Software on an IBM i LPAR that generates messages that can be received by Hub.

Ironstream® Agent for IBM Z

IBM Z Agent

Software in an IBM z/OS LPAR that generates messages that can be received by Hub.

Ironstream® for IBM i

Configuration Tool

Configuration Tool

A web browser-based user interface that provides a single location for defining the connection and collection details for IBM i Agents.

Note: IBM Z Agents are not configured using this tool. Those settings are defined in the LPAR itself. See the Ironstream for Splunk for IBM Z Configuration and User Guide for details on how define what data is sent to Hub from an IBM Z LPAR.

Hub Service

Hub Service

The Service that is created, as part of the installation process, to run Hub.

Record

A Record is a single set of data in a Hub Pipeline. Records can be in raw, JSON, CSV or other formats. Events and messages can be called Records.

Pipeline

Pipelines define how data moves from a Source through Processes to Data Targets.

Source

A Source is the origin of the data or records that are being collected. Sources are currently limited to IBM Z and IBM i systems running Ironstream agents. A pipeline will always start with a Source.

Target

A Target is the ultimate destination for the data, and it is the end point of a Pipeline. Example Targets include Kafka, Google Chronicle, and IBM QRadar. More generic Targets like TCP/IP and HTTP[S] allow data to be forwarded to other platforms such as Splunk, DataDog, and Big Panda.

Process

A Process is a function to process data. Processes can extract, filter, transform, aggregate, and filter data.

Routing

Routing refers to the method Hub uses to join a Source, an arbitrary number of Processes and an arbitrary number of targets into one or more Pipelines.
