Parsers and collectors
Devo is equipped to receive, store, and parse events seamlessly and securely from a wide range of commercial data sources including operating systems, networking infrastructure devices, business applications, and more. Each data source, or supported technology, is assigned a Devo tag that must be attached to each event when it is delivered to the Devo Cloud. This tag is a critical part of what makes Devo so powerful and fast as it determines how Devo will store and retrieve the events for display. This is what we know as a parser; a technology that organizes raw events stored in a tag in different columns and display them in the corresponding table.
A closer look at tags and tables
Read the article about Special Devo tags and data tables to learn the difference between tags and tables, and to discover some special tags and data tables you will find useful when working with Devo.
Also, Devo offers a series of collectors addressed to retrieve and store events from specific products. You only need to install a piece of software provided by the Devo team and start sending your data easily.
