This section explains each of the properties in the configuration blade.


Refer to Collections and Stream Hosts to understand more about Collections.


Assuming the following:

  • No. of Events: 15

  • Events per polling interval: 10

  • Micro Batch: enabled

  • Batch Size: 4

3 micro batches will be sent in the first interval (4, 4, and 2); and 2 in the next interval (4 and 1). There will be no further batches as the maximum number of events has been reached.

Event Definition

Defines the shape of the data to be created. There must be at least one row in this grid. Adding a new row, or selecting an existing row, will open another blade to allow you to edit that property.

Spike Settings

This area is used to generate a "spike" in a running data stream.

Unlike most configuration settings, it is not necessary to configure the Spike Value property before the Data Stream is published.

Although the Spike Value cannot be saved while the Data Stream runs, the Generate Spike button uses the current value. This allows you to spike a single property multiple times with different values.

The spike request is sent to a single Stream Host. It is most useful when demonstrating, testing, or developing a Data Stream in a collection with a single active stream host.
