UFM Telemetry Fluent Streaming (TFS) Plugin

NVIDIA UFM-SDN Appliance User Manual v4.11.1

TFS plugin is a self-contained Docker container with REST API support managed by UFM. TFS plugin provides Telemetry counters streaming to FluentD capability. As a fabric manager, the UFM Telemetry holds a real-time network telemetry information of the network topology. This information changes over time and is reflected to the telemetry console. In order to do so, we present a stream of the UFM Telemetry data to the FluentD plugin.

The following are the possible ways TFS plugin can be deployed:

  1. On UFM Appliance

  2. On UFM Software

For complete instructions on how to deploy the TFS plugin, refer to UFM Telemetry endpoint stream To Fluentd endpoint (TFS).
