Ingest is the process of uploading data into Scuba. Scuba supports the following methods of ingesting data:

  • Streaming ingest: A dynamic flow of live data, a high volume of data received via HTTP from a web or cloud source. 

  • Continuous ingest: A cron job that pushes content into the cluster at a steady (data-in-motion) rate.

  • Import: A file or batch of files (static data, data-at-rest) transferred at a prescribed time.
