Demo video: Different ingestion methods in Moogsoft Cloud

This video explains some of the different methods for ingesting data into Moogsoft Cloud, including collectors, tool-specific integrations, and custom (CYOI) integrations.

There are a few different methods for ingesting data into Moogsoft.


The collector is an agent that is deployed on a system you want to monitor. It handles discovery and sourcing metrics data. Then it transmits the data to Moogsoft without the involvement of an additional third-party software product.


These are tool-specific integrations.


These are fully UI-based integrations and include logic to reformat data from third-party software into Moogsoft format without additional configuration.


Push integrations are done via webhook. These consist of instructions and preconfigured mappings for transmitting data from a third-party monitoring application to Moogsoft.


Under the push category, we also offer API-based integrations. Events and metrics API pages include a full description of the schema and required fields, as well as auto-generated cURL commands with example JSON events.


You can also build a custom integration.  Choose this option over the events or metrics APIs if you want to ingest data with different schemas, and specify how to map third-party data to Moogsoft.
