Add a data stream

To monitor and gain real-time access to delivery performance, you need to create a data stream for your properties and specify a data set that you want this stream to deliver. You can associate a property with multiple data streams to collect aggregated and raw data at the same time, specify different data sets that you want to receive about your application, and extract transaction log data for some streams or send it to specific destinations for others.

For example, you may want to create two streams for your property. The first stream is an aggregated metrics stream that sends data to Datadog or Splunk. You can use it to visualize your logs, metrics, and performance data. The second stream is a raw log stream that doesn’t push data to any destination but stores it in a DataStream buffer. You can pull raw data monitored by this stream with your custom client and have real-time insight into the performance of your web application at your convenience.
