Vector is a high-performance, end-to-end (agent & aggregator) observability data pipeline that puts you in control of your observability data. Collect, transform, and route all your logs, metrics, and traces to any vendors you want today and any other vendors you may want tomorrow. Vector enables dramatic cost reduction, novel data enrichment, and data security where you need it, not where is most convenient for your vendors. Additionally, it is open source and up to 10x faster than every alternative in the space.
The following performance tests demonstrate baseline performance between common protocols with the exception of the Regex Parsing test.
