Vector is a unified observability agent, written in rust by Timber Technologies ( and acquired by Datadog. It processes logs, metrics, and spans (traces) as events through a DAG (graph) of composable transforms, from and through to a variety a sources and sinks. Its unique selling points include: its own DSL for wrangling events, vector tap to view a live stream of events flowing through the pipeline, and a unit test framework.
