Data Ingest Overview
HealthBot accepts data from a variety of Juniper and third-party devices. It accepts this data from various types of telemetry sensors and from traditional network management protocols like syslog and SNMP. We provide this data ingest guide as a way to understand the ingest methods that HealthBot supports and so that you can decide the best ways for you to get the needed health and performance data from your devices.
As mentioned in the user guide, HealthBot supports push and pull models of data collection. In the push model, your devices push telemetry data to HealthBot. In the pull mode, HealthBot periodically polls your devices for data. This guide describes each of the supported ingest methods, with examples, sorted by whether they fall into the push or pull model. Along with each description, we provide the required Junos OS version and device configurations needed to enable the specific ingest type.
