Retrieves events from a Tenzir node. The dual to import.


export [--live] [--internal] [--low-priority]


The export operator retrieves events from a Tenzir node.


Work on all events that are imported with import operators in real-time instead of on events persisted at a Tenzir node.


Export persistent events at a Tenzir node. Unless --live is given, this is implied.

Combine --retro and --live to export past events and live events afterwards.


There is a gap for live events that happen while past events are being exported.


Export internal events, such as metrics or diagnostics, instead. By default, export only returns events that were previously imported with import. In contrast, export --internal exports internal events such as operator metrics.


Treat this export with a lower priority, causing it to interfere less with regular priority exports at the cost of potentially running slower.


Expose all persisted events as JSON data.

export | to stdout

Apply a filter to all persisted events, then only expose the first ten results.

export | where | head 10 | to stdout
