A connector specifies how to exchange raw bytes with an underlying resource, such as a file, network socket, or message queue.

  1. Loader: translates raw bytes into structured event data
  2. Dumper: translates structured events into raw bytes

Loaders and dumpers interact with their corresponding dual from a format, as the diagram below shows:


Connectors are not yet exposed directly to the user. We have a corresponding roadmap item to track this effort. Please refer to the format documentation until then.
