The load operator acquires raw bytes from a connector.


load <url>
load <path>
load <connector>


The load operator emits raw bytes.

Notably, it cannot be used together with operators that expect events as input, but rather only with operators that expect bytes, e.g., read or save.


The connector used to load bytes.

Some connectors have connector-specific options. Please refer to the documentation of the individual connectors for more information.


Read bytes from stdin:

load stdin

Read bytes from the URL

load https

Read bytes from the file path/to/eve.json:

load path/to/eve.json
load file path/to/eve.json
