stdout

Overview#

The stdout output is used to output JSON-formatted records to stdout. It is useful for during initial installation and while troubleshooting issues to see the output of the collector directly in the terminal or logs.

note

At anything more than a few flow records per second the data will scroll too fast to be useful. For this reason the stdout output should be used primarily for manual testing.
