If you want to simulate real events or metrics data, try one of these stochastic source nodes:

  • CDN - Simulate hosts and services in a content distribution network (CDN), providing metric and event streams that vary with demand throughout the day.

  • Logs - Generate simulated streams of logs as event points from a variety of sources, emitting live or historic points using a configurable error rate.

  • Search cluster - Simulate a cluster of search engine hosts. This source is similar to CDN source, but with defaults that simulate multiple hosts undergoing a denial-of-service attack.
