Adding a Collector

Fluency appliances use a Server / Collector model to collect and process data. Collectors are managed in the "Collector" section under the "Configuration" section of the menu. Adding a Remote Collector is a two-step process that requires configuration on both the Server and the Collector appliance.

On the Server side, a unique Token is generated for the Collector through the Web interface. On the Collector side, this Token, as well as the hostname or IP address of the Server appliance, must be entered into the appliance via a local Terminal or SSH, as Collector appliances do not have their own web interface and are managed exclusively through the Server appliance after initial setup.

On the Collector configuration page, click the "+ COLLECTOR" button.

Give this Remote Collector appliance a unique name, along with a brief description. This name is used in communication between the Server and Collector appliance(s) via the FSL (Fluency Secured Link). Press "{\bfseries +} ADD" when finished.

A Remote collector is added. Notice that the status indicator is "RED". This is expected, as the Collector appliance is yet to be configured.

A Fluency Server appliance can support multiple Remote collectors.

Make a note of the unique Token that is shown for a particular Collector. It will be needed for configuration on the Collector side, in the next step.
