A connector specifies how to exchange raw bytes with an underlying resource, such as a file, network socket, or message queue.
- Loader: translates raw bytes into structured event data
- 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.
