AOS can be configured to generate Google Protocol Buffer (protobuf) streams for counter data (perfmon), alerts, and events. You can choose from the many open-source projects, or develop your own solutions to capture, store and inspect the protobuf data. Apstra has developed a project available on GitHub called AOSOM-Streaming to demonstrate how this can be achieved using several open-source components. The AOSOM-Streaming project is meant to help customers understand how they can consume the AOS protobuf stream. It is for demonstration purposes only, except for the AOS Telegraf input plugin. This plugin is fully supported by Apstra for customers to use as part of their streaming telemetry solution.
